Eight of the films in the series won Academy Awards.
Other early all-live-action Disney films included The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men (1952), The Sword and the Rose (1953), and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954).
When the United States entered the war after the attack on Pearl Harbor, many of Disney's animators were drafted into the armed forces. By 1942, 90% of its 550 employees were working on war-related films.
Films such as the feature Victory Through Air Power and the short Education for Death (both 1943) were meant to increase public support for the war effort.
Even the studio's characters joined the effort, as Donald Duck appeared in a number of comical propaganda shorts, including the Academy Award-winning Der Fuehrer's Face (1943).
With limited staff and little operating capital during and after the war, Disney's feature films during much of the 1940s were "package films", or collections of shorts, such as The Three Caballeros (1944) and Melody Time (1948), which performed poorly at the box office.
