Color film of spontaneous victory celebrations, Honolulu, August 14, 1945
Vincent Chiarello writes:
In this film, we see the celebration being carried out in a robust but restrained way. No rioting, no overturning vehicles, no shootouts. This was only a part of America’s armed forces, but the men appear mature for their ages, while the few women, who were there to do their duty, only further reflect that quietness in their happiness. Note the beachwear, and recall this was Honolulu in August.
