WTF2014 - 5/3/2021 17:09 Pretty sad that the original audio for that got sunk by a uboat on the way back to the US. edit: I remember reading that somewhere, but can't find the info on that. Maybe I'm mistaken!


Don't believe that is quite true, a while back I read a book about John Ford and some of the others who were doing that early color combat footage (he did a great one on the Midway battle, and of Torpedo 8 among other things).   It was silent footage and the audio was all added in stateside studios.  Makes it a bit hokey at times, but this stuff was absolutely state of the art then. I think the basis for what you were thinking of is actually the loss of footage taken on the day of the Normandy D-Day landings as referenced here.

I think you are right. I am mistaken. However, I suspect it has nothing to do with the link above. Just a poorly fact checked documentary I saw about the Memphis Belle. I'm a sucker for the Dark Docs series, but he bats about 60 to 70 percent.
