Official United States War Films (infantrymen), 1917

Stoner poster: Official United States War Films (infantrymen)

This dramatic poster served to promote the Film Division, one of the most important branches of the Committee on Public Information. The Division produced three major feature films to promote the war effort: Pershing's Crusaders, America's Answer and Under Four Flags. These films, along with several one reel films, served to bring the heroism and sacrifice at the front closer to home. Like its sister, the Department of Pictorial Publicity, the Film Division was highly successful, creating new records for distribution and film revenue.

Rare, in very good condition.
