Seven Brides for Uncle Sam
Film  (52:20) 1997, director: Anita McGee
Description
Seven Brides for Uncle Sam documents the stories of seven Newfoundland women who married American servicemen. Some of the largest military bases outside of the United States were in Newfoundland. It was called the "friendly invasion." From the beginning of World War II until the end of the Cold War, when the last base closed, as many as forty thousand Newfoundland women married Americans. Many of these liaisons were happy; some were not. In this film the momentous events of world history that brought men and women together are but a backdrop to poignant stories of romance, heartbreak, and joy.
