Description

Created in 1942, this wonderful propaganda and recruiting film explains that "men make the Navy and the Navy makes men" and features Lowell Thomas narrating.  Probably made before Pearl Harbor or adapted shortly after the Japanese attack on December 7th, the film features a brief segment at the end identifying Adolph Hitler and Japan as American adversaries.  Some of the material includes: fleet maneuvers involving battleships, cruisers, destroyers and aircraft carriers, PT boats including PT-9, the destroyer USS Phelps (DD-360) launching a torpedo at sea, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland and the Navy base at Groton, Connecticut, basic training, sailors drilling and exercising at sea.  Aircraft include SNJs and Douglas TBD-1 Devastator torpedo planes.
