The “Reel” Catch-22

Joseph Heller’s World War II novel Catch-22 often tops the lists of banned books.  Heller’s own experiences as a bombardier during the war provided the source material for many of the situations in the book.  His experience also found its way onto the big screen, by way of an Army film, “Training During Combat.”

Recently, Burton Blume, the son of the producer of the film (Lt. Wilbur Blume), helped NARA staff uncover footage of this film while tracing his own father’s experiences as a cameraman during the war.  Mr. Blume wrote a series of guests posts for the National Archives Special Media Division’s blog “The Unwritten Record,” discussing his father’s story, Catch-22 author Joseph Heller’s involvement in the film, plus a number of real life incidents from 340th Bomb Group War Diaries which likely inspired situations in the novel. 

Read the complete series below:

Back in April of this year I purchased from Comixology the " Complete Action Philosophers". Damn funny stuff. Will the hardcover coming out be any different? Aside from the change mentioned in your last post?

Thx! Yes, there are a LOT of differences: 

* Brand new “Action Philosophy” story from DH Presents #2

* Modified “Plato,” per Ryan’s post

* The never-before-reprinted “Recommended Reading for the Genius on the Go” from the original series

* ALL the covers, in COLOR

* Photos from the 2011 stage adaptation, also in COLOR

* Ryan’s behind the scene sketches, con commissions, and such. 

I know I’m biased, but Jim Gibbons and the Dark Horse team did a bang up job on this book — it is without a doubt the best and most comprehensive edition to date.
