Superman during WWII

This 1942 cartoon finds Lois and Clark trapped at Yokohama Navy Yard in Japan.

Superman comes to the rescue by sabotaging ships and wreaking havoc upon the Japanese military.

Since this was made during the war, it could be used as an example of propaganda, with a conversation about the portrayal of the Japanese (since it is obviously unfavorable).

    Safeguarding Military Information, 1941

    The message of this film essentially is “loose lips sink ships”.

    Interesting piece of propaganda urging people to be careful not to share information during the war in order to prevent unnecessary death(s).
