Marshall Plan Films
From 1948 to 1954, the Economic Cooperation Administration (ECA) and its successor, the Mutual Security Agency (MSA), administered the programs of the European Recovery Program, popularly known as the Marshall Plan. To promote the Plan’s aims and show what it was doing, the two agencies, along with the European (Regional) Service Center (aka European Production Center) of the U.S. Information Service ESC/ERSC/EPC) produced, adapted, and/or distributed over 300 films, mostly only in Europe. The prime exception was one series of television programs for U.S. viewers, STRENGTH FOR THE FREE WORLD. Some of these were re-edited and distributed in Europe, as well. Except for those made or sponsored by local ECA or MSA missions, most of the films were made first in English-language versions and adapted later to other languages, primarily in Paris, but some at the local missions. This filmography was compiled by Linda R. Christenson.
