| Hell in the Pacific
Another entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during World War II. This one's directed by Chuck Jones and is a bit different from most of the others. This one isn't really an instructional short so much as straightforward entertainment with Snafu and a Japanese soldier stranded on a Pacific island together. The two try to kill each other and one eventually succeeds. That's pretty much it. It immediately brought to my mind Hell in the Pacific, a movie from 1968 starring Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune that had a similar plot. Fine voice work from Mel Blanc and great use of music in this one make it better than average for the series.
