From the American Revolution to the ongoing U.S. involvement in the Middle East, Hollywood has played a vital role in bringing the battlefields to the American homefront. "War in Film" offers Newport News Public Library patrons a monthly variety of some of Hollywood's classic movies, including "All Quiet on the Western Front," "Mash" and "Black Hawk Down." The series culminates on Dec. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. with a panel discussion on Hollywood's role in shaping public perception of U.S. military actions.  

"At a time when so few Americans serve, movies often comprise the only exposure many get to combat, and shape the way we see who fights the nation’s battles." - Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
