The film, Fighting Lady: World War II In Color, is a World War II era "newsdrama" that was directed by William Wyler and narrated by United States Naval Reserve Lieut. Robert Taylor. The film follows one of the many new United States Navy aircraft carriers built after Pearl Harbor, known for purposes of this documentary as "The Fighting Lady" in honor of all the American carriers fighting during World War II. This film follows this aircraft carrier as it goes into action against the Japanese in the Pacific Ocean in 1943. The viewer will get a behind-the-scenes look at the ship and its pilots as they undergo their baptism of fire, attacking the large Japanese base on Marcus Island. The non-stop action next moves on as the carrier and its pilots are involved in the battles of Kwajalein and Truk, along with the famous "Marianas Turkey Shoot". This film will certainly appeal to anyone interested in naval avaition or World War II history. Narrated by United States Naval Reserve Lieut. Robert Taylor. Full screen in color. Released in 1944. Runtime 62 minutes.
