Netflix is releasing an exclusive documentary series, Five Came Back, which examines Pro-American propaganda in WWII and the filmmakers who created it.
As the title suggests, the work of five specific filmmakers (Frank Capra, George Stevens, John Ford, John Huston, William Wyler) will be examined by more household-name hosts such as Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, and Guillermo del Toro. The series is narrated by Meryl Streep.
In keeping with most of Netflix’s originals, Five Came Back sounds like an entertaining, valuable watch even if you’re mostly interested in seeing hours of old war footage. It will be available for streaming March 31st.
