520    "Wartime Kiss is a personal meditation on the haunting 
       power of American photographs and films from World War II 
       and the later 1940s. Starting with a powerful 
       reinterpretation of one of the most famous photos of all 
       time, Alfred Eisenstaedt's image of a sailor kissing a 
       nurse in Times Square on V-J Day, Alexander Nemerov goes 
       on to examine an idiosyncratic collection of mostly 
       obscure or unknown images and movie episodes--from a photo
       of Jimmy Stewart and Olivia de Havilland lying on a picnic
       blanket in the Santa Barbara hills to scenes from such 
       films as Twelve O'Clock High and Hold Back the Dawn. 
       Erotically charged and bearing traces of trauma even when 
       they seem far removed from the war, these photos and 
       scenes seem to hold out the promise of a palpable and 
       emotional connection to those years. Through a series of 
       fascinating stories, Nemerov reveals the surprising 
       background of these bits of film and discovers unexpected 
       connections between the war and Hollywood, from an 
       obsession with aviation to Anne Frank's love of the 
       movies. Beautifully written and illustrated, Wartime Kiss 
       vividly evokes a world in which Margaret Bourke-White 
       could follow a heroic assignment photographing a B-17 
       bombing mission over Tunis with a job in Hollywood 
       documenting the filming of a war movie. Ultimately this is
       a book about history as a sensuous experience, a work as 
       mysterious, indescribable, and affecting as a novel by 
       W.G. Sebald"--|cProvided by publisher.
