World War II Homefront Films Two short archival films depicted life on the homefront during World War II. The first was a “News Parade” film produced by Castle Films in 1942 called Washington in War Time. The ten-minute newsreel documented how the nation’s capital was coping with the war, including a doubling of the population. The second was a 1943 film titled Women on the Warpath, produced by Ford Motor Company. It was shot at the Willow Run B-24 Liberator Bomber plant near Ann Arbor, Michigan. This ten-minute color film program depicted bomber production and encouraged women to do all they could for the war effort when production was slowed by a labor shortage. close
