Preface for George C. Marshall Motion Pictures Guide

The following is a guide to George C. Marshall motion pictures. It includes reference videotapes housed at the George C. Marshall Research Library (GCMRL) in Lexington, Virginia, composed of select documentary film which is also available at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Motion Picture Division in College Park, Maryland (Archives II). Additional Hearst newsreel footage provides a sample of Marshall-related motion pictures available at the UCLA Film Archive in Los Angeles, California.

The guide includes films from 1917, when George C. Marshall observes training maneuvers at Gondrecourt, France, through 1964, when President Lyndon B. Johnson speaks at the dedication of the George C. Marshall Research Library in Lexington, Virginia.

Although most of the footage includes George Marshall pictured somewhere in the film, there is also film footage depicting events associated with his era (such as mobilization and the home front during World War II, the Women's Army Corps, and a sampling of Marshall Plan film). For a more extensive guide to Marshall Plan films, see Linda Christenson's Marshall Plan Filmography. Since George C. Marshall was a key figure of the twentieth century, the reference videotapes include scenes of Marshall during World War I, as chief of staff during World War II, during his mediation mission to China, while holding key positions as secretary of state and secretary of defense during the Cold War, and receiving the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1953.
