The Autobiography of a 'Jeep' (1943)

Directors: Irving Lerner, Joseph Krumgold

Writer: Joseph Krumgold

Starring: ???

More info: IMDb

Plot: The invention and use of a jeep are described, from the viewpoint of one of the vehicles.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again?  Maybe.

Back during WWII they were churning out one Jeep every two minutes.  Wow!   This picture throws out a lot of information in nine and a half minutes and it's entertaining to boot!  It's great seeing WWII footage of the different locales from across the globe as well as, my favorite, seeing the vehicles go through obstacle courses.  The film is very informative and entertaining.  The way this film portrays it, this is one hell of a versatile vehicle and you'd almost be lead to believe that it was was going to almost single-handily win the War.  I can imagine how uplifting this would be to audiences at that time.  It's optimistic and enjoyable.
