Like the military operation it celebrates, Tunisian Victory is a joint Anglo-American project. Produced by the British Film Unit and the U.S. Army Signal Corps, the film was supervised by England's Hugh Stewart and Hollywood's Frank Capra. Running 75 minutes -- unusually long for a documentary, even a wartime one -- the film covers the length and breadth of the allied North African campaign, from first landings to final triumph. The film is narrated by Bernard Miles and Burgess Meredith, respectively impersonating a British "Tommy" and an American GI. Tunisian Victory was distributed to civilian audiences by MGM.
