Not Exactly What I Expected

(3 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD contains newsreel footage from the early days of World War II, both on the home front and from the battlefield. Although the newsreels are informative, they are not what I was expecting when I started to watch this disc. I was hoping to see a documentary program about the early battles of the war, such as Pearl Harbor and Midway. Instead I saw footage about tennis matches and food rationing. I realize that these newsreels were made for the information amd morale of the American people, but I was hoping for something more from this disc.
The one newsreel I did enjoy was Abbott and Costello's famous "Who's on First" comedy routine. If you enjoy informative newsreel footage, then this disc is definitely for you. If, however, you were looking for a documentary about the early days of the war like I was, then look for a different DVD, because you won't find what you're looking for on this disc."
