american propaganda at its finest
Though it's got its propagandist moments (the brutal end card, being one), that McCay championed animation much in the same way we use CG today, to recreate events uncaptured or uncapturable by a camera, is a wonder in and of itself. And it's a lovely, painterly departure from his cartoon work.
