As a result of research published in the IAMHIST
Journal, we know that even such gritty documentaries as The Battle of San Pietro have staged segments--indeed, the film could not have been so dramatically engaging without them.
These books include Hollywood's World War I (an outgrowth of the IAMHIST
meeting in Amsterdam in 1993); Hollywood's Indian (special issue project); Hollywood's White House (produced from some of the fine papers at our presidency conference in Hollywood); and, forthcoming, Hollywood's West (some papers from our Kansas City meeting on this topic).
John O'Connor had introduced me to the pleasures of the International Association for Media and History (IAMHIST
), but I had to attend the 1991 IAMHIST
Congress at the University of Gottingen alone, since John was ailing that year.
