[1943 Pullman Troop Sleeper — Wikipedia]
All aboard, you birds! This…
…is a great propaganda film, it shows the role of the railroad in World War II troop transport, and if that runt, Hitler, had ever seen it, why he would have just thrown in the sponge on the spot. The cheesy little nincompoop…. They should show it to Osama too, if they can ever even just manage to find out where he is in the first place! It is also a bit wistful for us children of America’s so-called “Greatest Generation” to look at, though, because it sure shows how far behind us today anything really modern is, especially now at the end of our less than spectacular run.
