Fighting the war / photographer, Donald C. Thompson (1916) -- The log of the U-35 / Lothar von Arnauld de la Periere (combined 1919 British version and 1920 American versions of original German film (1917) titled: Der Magische Gürtel (The Enchanted circle) -- The secret game / William C. de Mille (Paramount) with Sessue Hayakawa, Florence Vidor, Jack Holt, Charles Ogle (1917) -- The moving picture boys in the Great War / narrator, Lowell Thomas (1975)
These four silent films explain essential news and propaganda functions of the movies during the Great War of 1914-1918. In those days before television and radio, fiction films in movie theaters were the most widely shared public experience while news films presented the most detailed and potent images of military life and front line action. Some news films were faked but some was authentic, obtained at great risk by daredevil combat cameramen.
