Filming landing operations with a Magazine CinT-Kodak in North Africa. ON EVERY FIGHTING FRoNT-Cifle-Kodak eJl. I i lm TOUGH GOING IN THE ALEUTIANS. Wind, rain, snow, dense fog ... Our operations in this sphere were as difficult and hazardous as any our forces have undertaken. But Cine-Kodak worked right along with the Army-showed it could stand up to the severest tests. Remember that superb film, "The Aleutians"? It was largely filmed with Cine-Kodaks. TOUGH GOING IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC, when our Marines are moving in on one of the Jap bases. Remember Tarawa-the hardest fight and great est victory in the whole 146 years' history of the Marines? "The Aleutians" largely filmed with Cine-Kodak Specials. Six Cine-Kodaks were used in that battle. All during the three days of fighting these cam eras were on the go constantly and behaved su perbly. Result-that memorable documentary film, "With the Marines at Tarawa." TOUGH GOING IN NORTH AFRICA. All equipment had to take a terrific walloping . . . from sand storms, the heat and cold, the jolting, the terrific concussions of bombing and heavy artillery. But Cin6-Kodal EASTMAN'S FINER HOME MOVIE CAMEl All photographs by U.S . Navy, U.S . Marine Corps, and U.S . Signal Corps there again Cine-Kodak "came through"-when, amid bursting shells, 42 photographers of the U.S . Army Signal Corps and 15 to 20 U.S. Navy men, armed with tommy guns and hand grenades as well as cameras, made "At the Front in North Africa." Magazine sine-rodaks were used in the battle at Tarawa. On all the fighting fronts you'll find Cine-Kodak doing its job-operating with accuracy and de pendability under incredibly rough conditions. Literally thousands of Cine-Kodaks are in Army, Navy, and Air Force hands, contributing to war training, and to the most complete war record ever attempted in movies. * * * If you own a Cine-Kodak-be proud of it. Take care of it. Use it, these days of limited film, to make movies of the home front, to show your soldier or sailor when he comes back . . . Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, N. Y.
