Storyline

This March-of-Time entry presents a kaleidoscopic analysis of the hardships facing the Filipino people at the end of World War II. In contrast to the scenes of war's devastation are flashbacks reviewing the culture, heritage and prosperity formerly enjoyed by the Islands. It also includes newsreel shots of General Douglas MacArthur and the then-Major Dwight D. Eisenhower at work in the Phillipines in pre-war days. Current segments include sequences of revived activity, the difficulties brought on by economic instability, and President Osmena's efforts in the United States on behalf of the Phillipines people.
