So Proudly We Hail 1943

Some impressive miniature work by the great Gordon Jennings in this film made during and concerning nurses in the second World War. Of particular note is the night time sequence of the island evacuation using small boats while under fire, all in miniature both outright shots and as process rear projected backgrounds to the live action actors.

Northern Pursuit 1943

This Errol Flynn Nazi spy movie has some miniature ship stock shots lifted from "Sea Hawk" 1940, followed by a miniature submarine surfacing through ice. It also has a miniature avalanche, train and aircraft sequence, making it a bit of a treat for miniature enthusiasts like myself. While the Special effects are supervised by Roy Davidson there is no credit for the visual effects.
