Belton, John. ''American Cinema American Culture''. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1994, pp. 165-171, ISBN 978-0070044661. Film scholar Kathryn Kane has pointed out similarities between the war film genre and the Western (Western (genre)). Both genres use opposing concepts like war and peace, civilization and savagery. War films usually frame World War II as a conflict between good and evil as represented by the Allied forces (Allies of World War II) and Nazi Germany whereas the Western portrays the conflict between "civilized" settlers and the "savage" indigenous peoples. Kane, Kathryn. "The World War II Combat Film". In: Wes D. Gehring (ed.) ''Handbook of American Film Genres''. New York: Greenwood Press, 1988, pp. 90-91, ISBN 978-0313247156. Film historian Jeanine Basinger argues that a sub-genre, the ''World War II combat film'', emerged in 1943. This sub-genre depicts military action whereas the war film genre need not portray armed combat. Basinger, Jeanine. ''World War II Combat Film: The Anatomy of a Genre''. New York: Columbia University Press, 1986, pp. 14-75, ISBN 978-0231059527. After the United States entered the war in 1941 Hollywood began to mass-produce war films. Many of the American dramatic war films in the early 1940s were designed to celebrate American unity and demonize "the enemy." One of the conventions of the genre that developed during the period was of a cross-section of the American people who come together with a common purpose for the good of the country, i.e. the need for mobilization. Hollywood films in the 1950s and 1960s were often inclined towards spectacular heroics or self-sacrifice in films like ''Sands of Iwo Jima'' (1949), ''Halls of Montezuma (Halls of Montezuma (film))'' (1950) or ''D-Day the Sixth of June'' (1956). They also tended to toward stereotyping: typically, a small group of ethnically diverse men would come together but would not be developed much beyond their ethnicity; the senior officer would often be unreasonable and unyielding; almost anyone sharing personal information - especially plans for returning home - would die shortly thereafter and anyone acting in a cowardly or unpatriotic manner would convert to heroism or die (or both, in quick succession). Twentieth-Century Fox made a succession of war films realistically filmed in black-and-white in the early 1950s that highlighted little-known aspects of World War II, among them ''The Frogmen'', ''Go For Broke! (Go for Broke! (1951 film))'', ''You're in the Navy Now'', and ''Decision Before Dawn''. After ''The NeverEnding Story (Die Unendliche Geschichte (film))'' (1984), Petersen's first full-blown Hollywood effort (although filmed at the Bavaria Film Studios complex in Germany), ''Enemy Mine (Enemy Mine (film))'' (1985), was not a critical and box office success. He finally hit his stride in 1993 with the assassination thriller ''In the Line of Fire''. Starring Clint Eastwood as an angst-ridden presidential Secret Service (United States Secret Service) guard, ''In the Line of Fire'' gave Petersen the box office clout he needed to direct another suspense thriller, ''Outbreak (Outbreak (film))'' (1995), starring Dustin Hoffman. The 1997 Petersen blockbuster, ''Air Force One (Air Force One (film))'', did very well at the box office, while getting a mix of opinions from movie critics. For both ''Air Force One'' and ''Outbreak (Outbreak (film))'' (but not for ''The Perfect Storm (The Perfect Storm (film))'') Petersen teamed up with the German cinematographer Michael Ballhaus, who has also worked frequently with director Martin Scorsese. In another project, Petersen was the executive producer for the film ''Red Corner'', starring Richard Gere. On May 26, 1929, Fox Film Corporation released ''Fox Grandeur News'' and ''Fox Movietone Follies of 1929'' in New York City in the Fox Grandeur (70 mm Grandeur film) process. Other films shot in widescreen were the musical (Musical film) ''Happy Days (Happy Days (1929 film))'' (1929) which premiered at the Roxy Theater (Roxy Theatre (New York City)), New York City, on February 13, 1930, starring Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell and a 12 year old Betty Grable as a chorus girl; ''Song o’ My Heart,'' a musical feature starring Irish tenor John McCormack (John McCormack (tenor)) and directed by Frank Borzage (''Seventh Heaven (Seventh Heaven (1927 film)),'' ''A Farewell to Arms''), which was shipped from the labs on March 17, 1930, but never released and may no longer survive, according to film historian Miles Kreuger (the 35mm version, however, debuted in New York on March 11, 1930); and the western (Western (genre)) ''The Big Trail'' (1930) starring John Wayne and Tyrone Power, Sr. which premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on October 2, 1930, Widescreen films in the 1920s and 1930s all of which were also made in the 70mm Fox Grandeur process. Films Mainstream Hindi films (Bollywood) are popular in Bengal, and the state is home to a thriving cinema industry (Bengali cinema), dubbed "Tollywood". Tollygunj in Kolkata is the location of numerous Bengali movie studios, and the name "Tollywood" (similar to Hollywood and Bollywood) is derived from that name. The Bengali film industry is well known for its art films, and has produced acclaimed directors like Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Tapan Sinha and Ritwik Ghatak. Prominent contemporary directors include Buddhadev Dasgupta, Goutam Ghose, Aparna Sen and Rituparno Ghosh. Within a few years this led to the distribution of pictures across a four-state area. In 1912, Harry Warner hired an auditor named Paul Ashley Chase. By the time of World War I they had begun producing films, and in 1918 the brothers opened the Warner Bros. studio on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Sam and Jack Warner produced the pictures, while Harry and Albert Warner and their auditor and now controller Chase handled finance and distribution in New York City. It was during World War I and their first nationally syndicated film was ''My Four Years in Germany'' based on a popular book by former American Ambassador James W. Gerard. On April 4, 1923, with help from a loan given to Harry Warner by his banker Motley Flint, Cass Warner Sperling, Cork Millner, and Jack Warner (1998), ''Hollywood be thy name: the Warner Brothers story'' (Lexington, Kentucky: University Press of Kentucky), p. 77. they formally incorporated as '''Warner Brothers Pictures, Incorporated'''.
