Produced during the US involvement in the Vietnam War, this documentary is a half-hour satire about the United States' involvement in the Spanish-American War (April-December 1898), and then the Philippine-American War (1899-1902). Using newsreels and ragtime, it reveals American attitudes towards non-white peoples and cultures to show the connection between imperialism and the Cold War.
