Immigration– 1946 film produced by Encyclopedia Britannica Films

Author: Encyclopedia Britannica Films

This 1946 film, made for instruction, is approximately 10 minutes long. Despite its Pollyannish final 2 minutes and its unforgivable neglect of African Americans (only one phrase – “a great many Negroes," accompanied by an arrow from Africa to the US), this film does a better job when discussing immigration from Italy, Eastern Europe, Japan, China and Mexico.
