The Hagerstown Junior Chamber of Commerce hired a Lancaster, Pennsylvania based film company to produce a film entitled "See Yourself And Your Town In The Movies," in early spring 1941. The movie makers ventured all over Hagerstown and parts of Washington County, filming as many people and scenes as they could squeeze into a two-hour motion picture. The resulting movie documented life in Hagerstown and Washington County on the eve of World War II featuring hundreds of local citizens and dozens of churches, schools, factories, and street scenes.
