Those who fail to learn from history, the saying goes, are destined to repeat it. This is the lesson propounded by the 60-minute documentary Farewell to Yesterday. Producer Edmund Reek and screenwriter Joseph Kenas, both members of the Fox Movietone Newsreel team, demonstrate through a series of well-chosen filmclips the tragic errors of judgment, diplomacy and omission that brought about World War II. Much of the material is drawn from the Movietone vaults, though certain scenes were contributed by foreign film services. Farewell to Yesterday benefits from the insightful voiceover narration by Sidney Blackmer, John Larkin, Kermit Murdock and William Post Jr.
