Disaster Montage, 1940s

Various quick shots from the closing montage of a Red Cross disaster short. Flames, flood, a building collapse, a small plane skids along a runway leaving a trail of smoke. Quick shot of a Red Cross committee meeting in front of a map. Flames dissolve into a blowing flag with the Red Cross symbol. Oddly heroic, patriotic sounding music swells to a climax as flames grow stronger.
