This chapter focuses on Capra’s career after his leaving the army. Capra was hoping to pick up where he had left off in Hollywood when Pearl Harbor interrupted his career. Just as he was doing then, he was looking for a safe haven as a studio contract director, preferably with a long-term deal. But unlike in 1941, studio offers were not forthcoming. Like it or not, going independent was Capra’s only postwar option. In the fall of 1944, while still recovering from the shock of learning that no studios wanted him, Capra formed Liberty Films, Inc., in partnership with William Wyler, George Stevens, and Sam Briskin.
