Food Will Win The War, Disney’s World War II Propaganda Film

When they weren’t creating timeless classics or animated acid trips, Disney took full advantage of having America’s attention in the 40s, by making war propaganda films. Created in 1942, Food Will Win The War attempts to make US citizens feel warm and fuzzy during wartime, by using US agriculture as a measure of the country’s power.

However, the film occasionally derails with highly-exaggerated statistics, images of spaghetti sweaters covering the earth, and giant ears of corn hanging over Hitler’s head. See for yourself.
