Why Watch? Because Dr. Seuss wants to tell you how to behave now that the war is over.

Dr. Seuss and Frank Capra teamed up for this educational film shown to military personnel stationed in Germany after the war was won. As they point out, it’s a delicate peace.

There can be a comedic quality to the way this film is presented (especially in light of its treatment of German history), but it’s also important to see this in the context of when and why it was created. It was a film specifically meant to keep its audience on its guard long after they finished watching it. It was also a serious flick made by two men with strong senses of humor.

Sadly, unlike Seuss’s other work, none of it rhymes.

What does it cost? Just 12 minutes of your time.
