Summary, etc.:
From PBS: War, deception and art come together in this astonishing true story of American G.I.s who tricked the enemy with rubber tanks, sound effects and carefully crafted illusions during WWII. This remarkable tale of a top-secret mission that was at once absurd, deadly and amazingly effective is told through the stories of the veterans, many of whom - like Bill Blass and Ellsworth Kelly - would go on to have illustrious careers in art, design and fashion.
