Abstract : Whether you call them movies or films is not important. What is important is that movies both reflect and have a strong impact on our society, thus they should not be taken lightly. The way a film depicts a military officer can have enormous impact on how young people react to an officer when they meet him face to face. The slant taken by the producer, director or writer of a film can contribute to public attitudes toward a war-witness the films produced during World War II and those produced during the war in Vietnam. Lieutenant Colonel Greynolds, working on a limited canvas due to space limitation, shows us that movies don't just entertain. They influence.
