Description by OLDIES.com:

Bob Hope narrates this patriotic look at post-World War II America and the sweeping changes to society brought about by peace. Highlights include Churchill's "Iron Curtain" speech, Truman's defeat of Dewey in the greatest political upset of the century and the McCarthy hearings launching a Red witch hunt. Americans mourn the passing of legendary New Yorkers Babe Ruth and Fiorello LaGuardia. Einstein warns that man now possesses the awesome power of the atom. The Nuclear Age brings a proliferation of UFO sightings. Television explodes on the scene to revolutionize the American living room and makes superstars of Milton Berle, Sid Caesar and Kukla, Fran and Ollie. Directed by Donald B. Hyatt.

Bonus: The All-Star Bond Rally (1945) starring Bob Hope, Betty Grable, Harpo Marx, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and many others.
