The career of director Frank Capra from his early years with Hal Roach, the war years and the creation of his Why We Fight Series, and his post war films until his retirement. In an interview recorded at Washington State University in 1976 or 1977, Capra discusses the rationale behind the Why We Fight Series and his difficulty in making documentaries. Capra offers a message to young people today on his life experiences and his belief in the saleability of sentiment and heroism of the underdog. The video was recorded from a 1977 U-Matic video (call number 3/4" 10054), and due to the condition of the tape it accelerates and decelerates slightly at a few points during this recording.
