Hollywood went to war with gusto. Convinced that movies had an extraordinary power to mobilize public opinion, the U.S. Government "recruited" Hollywood to boost the war effort. 

Each segment incorporates photographs from the personal and family collections of the great directors, along with excerpts from their personal diaries and notes, with voice overs by Capra, Ford, Huston and Wyler describing the making of the motion pictures.
Hollywood Home Entertainment's special relationship with the Capra, Ford, Huston and Wyler families assures an intimate look at the wartime lives and films of these great directors, guaranteeing fascinating stories and fast-paced action.

Every episode of the series features an original segment that opens and closes the episode.
