Memorial Day - Jackie Coogan in WWII film

Ancestry has just launched the US Military Collection with over 90 million records covering all the wars from Vietnam to earlier conflicts. The new section also contains over 260 newsreels from World War II. One of these reels by UNITED NEWS is called "Everybody Joins US War Effort" which contains footage of Jackie Coogan, Charlie Chaplin's star in The Kid.

Many other stars can be seen in this film including Clark Gable, James Cagney, Heddy Lamar, Greer Garson, James Stewart and many more.

If you are not an Ancestry member, you can view these films for FREE until June 6th, 2007, by signing-up for a free membership. If you have been a member in the past, just use your former password and user name. (Note: Due to heavy traffic, it can be a bit slow at times.)
