Remedial and Special Education, v22 n4 p223-32 Jul-Aug 2001
In this article, six Academy Award-winning movies about warfare and disability are analyzed by synthesizing historical information, characteristics of specific disability conditions, and disability-related social issues. Each film's content is examined, with emphasis on how each may potentially influence viewer understanding of disability. Implications for special education practices are discussed.
