Work for this week

So, for reading, split Celluloid Soldiers up.  Get to "Change of Heart" for Monday and finish the book by Thursday.

Watching, viewing, etc..  I'd say look at the Seuss at your leisure, try to listen to 2 or 3 Father Coughlin "sermons", and do whatever propaganda research you'd like to on this subject.  The Warner Brothers book is something you can read straight or you can explore it by finding out more about some of the moments Birdwell highlights.  I'm fairly sure you can find the short on Prezl, Germany from "Boscoe's Picture Show" on-line.

I cannot stress how important The Great Dictator is in all this.  If you haven't seen it, I think it's in your best interest to get it on Netflix.  Watch it and ask yourself, what did the Nazis mean to Charlie Chaplin.  Years later, Chaplin, in his autobiography admits doubts as to whether he should have made the film, given what came of Nazism.
