Remastered: The House I Live In (1945 Frank Sinatra Short Film).

In 1945 a Frank Sinatra starred in a 10 minute long short film called “The House I live In”. The message of the film was meant to fight anti-Semitism post World War 2.

We came across this little film a while back, and in honour today of International Holocaust Day of Remembrance have created this newly Remastered version of this piece of American Filmmaking (and Music) History.

For the purposes of keeping with the original sentiment of anti-bigotry, some out-dated language has been edited out.

This film is in the Public Domain and is part of the United States Library of Congress’ National Film Registry, as part of their “Free to Use and Reuse” collection.
