The second recess began with the plan to resume the hearings in October after watching a series of films discussed during the investigation. However, the mounting criticism would make it difficult to predict a victory for the isolationist senators. Because the films had not yet been screened, and with the growing divide within the subcommittee with Senator Tobey’s antics on the last day, the Los Angeles Times predicted the end of the investigation was near. The Senate subcommittee on Motion Picture Propaganda was finally disbanded on December 18, 1941. The subcommittee would never reconvene as Hollywood, along with the rest of the country, had become wholeheartedly dedicated to the war effort. The isolationists had no choice but to go along for the ride. Those involved with the Senate investigation would continue to do their jobs and live their lives. Unlike other events in political history, this one would not have many ripple effects after December 7, 1941. The United States senators would see a mixed bag of career success.
