The Fighting Generation is a 1944 public service announcement short film produced for the U.S. Treasury Department and intended to encourage war bond sales, directed by an uncredited Alfred Hitchcock and starring Jennifer Jones as a nurse's aide.
This film features examples of:
- The Faceless: We see Johnny lying in a hospital bed, but we never see his face.
- Minimalist Cast: The film only features Jennifer Jones's character and Johnny.
- No Name Given: The nurse's aide's name isn't mentioned.
- Title Drop: At the end of the nurse's aide's speech.Nurse's Aide: So let's all of us do a little something extra too, and buy that Bond beyond the one we've planned for. Surely that isn't too much to do... for the fighting generation.
