| or Give Me Death!
A short film from the Warner Bros. company, "Give Me Liberty" boasts Technicolor photography as the main attraction. It won an "Academy Award" as the best color short film of the year. This was one of several patriotic themed short films released as bonus historical features; they probably put theater audiences in a good mood. This one features John Litel portraying revolutionary war hero Patrick Henry, who is credited with the rallying cry, "Give me liberty, or give me death!" The line is cemented into the brains of kids who listened to their American history teachers; it perfectly illustrates the passion and determination of the United States founders.
