"My Country 'Tis of Thee" (named after a famous song that's perhaps the highlight of the entire thing) is an Oscar-nominated documentary film from 1950 that runs for 20 minutes and is partially in color, which should not be taken for granted for a film this old. There is a pretty clean structure in here: The first 10 minutes are about everything before the 20th century (Civil War, Lincoln, Pilgrims...) and the second half is about the three defining wars since 1900. Of course there wasn't a whole lot to say yet about the Cold War back in 1950, so I am fine with them just rushing it in in one minute at the very end, but the did the same with World War I, which is a bit disappointing in my opinion as all the focus is really on World War II, not too surprising though with how much it was still on people's minds. And with the way, the narrator talks enthusiastically about bombs raining down on Germany and also with what happened in Japan back then, it feels kinda wrong, completely aside from the fact that war should never really result in exaggerated joy, even if you are the winner. So yes, this one is certainly walking on the edge in terms of how acceptable it is with its contents and sometimes it's crossing the border of acceptable patriotism and turning into a rejectable propaganda piece. The first half did not interest me too much for personal preferences and the second did, but was rather shallow in its execution. Glad to see it lost the Oscar to Disney's take on beavers. Don't watch.
