SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE: The original release sheet reads: "THE BIG PICTURE" to focus on Japanese officer candidate school and European little theatre group -- To show how this country has helped a convalescing nation back to its feet so that it might take its rightful place among the community of free nations, THE BIG PICTURE covers the establishment and growth of the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces. Aided by the American Army, Japan turns to its youth and establishes an Officer Candidate School on the Island of Kyushu, to provide the best possible training for each young lieutenant. Begun in 1953, this newly formed military arm in Japan is dramatically filmed and presented as the first story on this pictorial report in THE BIG PICTURE series. On the other side of the world, in Germany, an activity of a lighter kind is photographed by Signal Corps cameramen. This second story deals with Army sponsored amateur little theatres, supported by funds from the Army Service Clubs and assisted by professional service personnel. FOR MORE INFORMATION:
