Thank you for taking such special care of these lenses. I enjoy watching films shot with ;-) these lenses. And I like knowing they did not cost you that much (-:
Dr. Suess Goes to War by Richard H. Minear
"So long as men can do THIS they're FREE!" Even the bird atop the pole thumbs its nose at Hit**r! Freedom includes the freedom to dissent. The original drawing carries the title "The Fifth Freedom." In his State of the Union speech on January 6, 1941 President Roosevelt had spoken of "Four Freedoms": freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, and freedom from fear; they became a major focus of American domestic propaganda. With this cartoon Dr. Seuss added one more freedom: the freedom to thumb one's nose. At least in the cartoon, this freedom is strikingly white, male, middle-class, and violent--a dozen or so men carry cudgels. (Page 189)
June 1941, Dr. Seuss linked America First not only with Nazis and fascists. Dr. Seuss shows a kangaroo "America First" carrying in its pouch a second kangaroo ("Nazis"), carrying in its pouch a third kangaroo ("Fascists"), carrying in its pouch a fourth kangaroo ("Communists").
At the end of August 1941 came a cartoon showing German submariners deciding not to fire on the good ship "U. S. S. Disunity." Says one German to the other: "Don't waste a torpedo, Fritz, we can take this gang with a butterfly net!" (Page 190)
