There were posters with movie stars, like Rita Hayworth, who would have slogans like, "Drive carefully, my bumpers are on the scrap heap." This encouraged people to help with the war effort and give their scraps to the scrap drives.

Cutting down (Insulting) of Soviet made equipment sometimes was propaganda; some of their tanks may have been inferior to US tanks, but they were simple and effective. Consequently, some of that information may have been propaganda.

I think if anything Hollywood has shown that it is a house of innovation and not necessarily a propaganda machine. I think films have proven to be a forum of entertainment and thought. They general underline the goodness of humanity, not its worst. While some films may contain propaganda it is far from its worst.

During the war, as theater attendance (and thus, profits) dropped, Walt Disney and his studio switched over to making propaganda films for the US government. Some of the films were for helping to train the US military; others were simply anti-Axis propaganda. Some of these are in the public domain now, and can be found online on sites like Youtube. A couple examples are "Education for Death" and "Der Fuehrer's Face".

Her real name was Mildred Gillars, but she was nicknamed Axis Sally. She lived from 1900 to 1988. <><><> Axis Sally (above) was one of the persons used for propaganda purposes. Realistically, EVERYONE produced propaganda during WW 2. Some was to provide slanted information to the other country's soldiers, some to encourage one's own civilians, some to encourage one's own military, some to discourage other countries military. Everything from the well known poster of Rosie the Riveter to flyers for War Bonds, to the "Keep em Flying" posters could be considered propaganda. Countries that produced this included Germany, Japan, Italy, Britain, France, Canada, the US, Australia.

The term propaganda has a negative connotation. If you had some useful and positive information to disseminate, you would be more likely to call it education, rather than propaganda.
