Film as propaganda and the oppositions in a classic Western

Went the Day Well? is a wartime film that was used to help the Ministry of Information's campaign and warnings against complacency during the second World War. My article Went the Day Well? An Effective Propaganda Film examines the messages it gave to the public at a time when there was an ongoing threat of German invasion.

I have also written two articles about one of John Ford's classic Westerns, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: Visual Oppositions and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: Thematic Oppositions look at the recurrence of opposites, both in elements of the films' mise en scรจne and its themes.
