Summary
Documentary study of changing American attitudes as isolationism is abandoned and the United States becomes directly invloved in World War I. Film segments from commercial films and an account of the propagandistic use of newsreels illustrate the relationship between changing American attitudes towards the conflict in Europe and the content of motion pictures from 1914 to 1918
