3-Dimensional Movies, they’re called – so realistic that the characters seem to step from the screen and pass beside you. Planes roar out of the sky and into the very theatre. Flowers in a garden seem to spill their petals right into your lap. Every screen play is a vast and enthralling spectacle, so true to life you feel you are one of the actors! That’s the movie of the future, being perfected now by MEN WHO THINK OF TOMORROW!
Yugoslavian partisans who survived imprisonment by the Germans at Dachau concentration camp pose with a sign which reads “Long Live the United Alliance of Anti-Fascist Youth of Yugoslavia” in Serbo-Croatian, a portrait of Marshal Josip Broz Tito and flanked by two socialist Yugoslavian flags. The former inmates were members of the National Liberation Army and Partisan Detachments of Yugoslavia, Yugoslavia’s largest resistance movement, led by Tito and the Communist Party of Yugoslavia. Dachau was liberated by the U.S. Army’s 42nd (”Rainbow”) Infantry Division on 29 April 1945. Dachau concentration camp, near Dachau, Bavaria, Germany. May 1945.
“It was all clear blue sky all the way—as I was sure our life would be. I couldn’t forget Bogie’s tears. Every time I looked at him I welled up. How had I lived before him? I couldn’t remember my life before him—it all ran together, like watercolors. It seemed that everything that had ever happened to me had led to this day with him. I don’t know whether it was his particular personality, his strength and purity of thought, or whether all brides feel that way. Probably a combination. I had no doubt that this happiness would last forever. I could not imagine living a minute without him. From now on I would not have to—we were together now, like the man said, “till death do you part.”
— Lauren Bacall on her wedding to Humphrey Bogart, May 21st, 1945.
“In a way, it’s an actor’s vanity to imagine that he’ll be remembered or his work will be appreciated in years to come, but in another way it’s not a bad ambition to try to do some work that will stand the test of time.”
