Netflix’s new three-part, three-hour documentary series Five Came Back chronicles the not-so-well-known efforts of five extraordinary Hollywood directors (William Wyler, John Huston, George Stevens, Frank Capra and John Ford) who put their careers on hold to join with the U.S. government in creating propaganda films during World War II. Based on Mark Harris’ excellent 2014 book Five Came Back: A Story Of Hollywood And The Second World War, which Harris has adapted for Netflix, the series details these five very different personalities who became guns for hire in the war effort and made very different kinds of films than they ever had before.
