Produced through the facilities of Warner Bros., The Power Behind the Nation stresses the indispensability of good, solid, Yankee workmanship. This 20-minute tribute to American Industry shows the strides made during WWII, when ever-increasing production quotas were the order of the day. All aspects of industrialism and commerce are covered, from the lumber business to the fish-canning concerns of the East and West coasts. Narrator Art Gilmore and screenwriter Saul Elkins never pass up an opportunity to push the necessity of labor and management working together in close harmony (take that, you strikers!) Filmed in Technicolor, The Power Behind the Nation was produced at the special request of Eric Johnston, the ultra-conservative president of the Motion Picture Association.
