Thanks to my daughter Autumn, I have discovered a wonderful source of hard-to-find film documentaries about American folk or roots cultures. These films are available streaming on the internet for free. The documentaries were produced by independent filmmakers in a golden age that began in the 1960s and was made possible by the development first of the portable cameras and then by the capacity for synchronized sound. Their films focus on the culture, struggles, and arts of unnoticed Americans from many different regions and communities.

The Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler incident, 20 December, 1943

The Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler incident occurred on the 20 December, 1943, when, after a successful bomb run on Bremen, Charles ‘Charlie’ Brown’s B-17 Flying Fortress (named “Ye Olde Pub”) was severely damaged by German fighters. Luftwaffe pilot and ace Franz Stigler had an opportunity to shoot down the crippled bomber, but instead, for humanitarian reasons, decided to allow the crew to fly back to their airfield in England. wikipedia.org
