It is only fitting to celebrate our independence by going BEYOND THE MASK! With people out and about and ready to gather, July 4th may be the biggest spectacle we've seen in years. But we recommend you also celebrate our nation's independence and take a break from the heat and crowds by watching  TheArchive 's, BEYOND THE MASK . Beyond the Mask , in beautiful 4K, is an action-packed adventure set in 1776 during the turmoil of the Revolutionary war, bringing history to life in a story filled with liberty, freedom, and faith.

Andrew Cheney stars as William Reynolds, Kara Kilmer as Charlotte Holloway, Alan Madlane as Benjamin Franklin, and John Rhys-Davies as the corrupt Charles Kemp in a performance Variety praised as, "bellicose, two dimensional villainy that makes for undeniably enjoyable viewing."

War of 1812 Docuseries: Memorial Day Spotlight

Image
The War of 1812, while known by name, is often one of those long running series of battles and significant losses of life, that is not well known in story.  War of 1812 , the four part docuseries, brings to life an extraordinary conflict that decided the fate of North America, confirmed the creation of Canada, and annihilated the dream of an independent Native nation.   Featuring robust reenactments of the battles and tense correspondence between leaders,  War of 1812  offers a rare look at history.  The depth of death and loss among Canadian militia forces and losses among native tribes was staggering for its time or any time for that matter.  British injury and loss outpaced American lives lost but all told nearly 15,000 died from all causes directly related to the War of 1812 .  We memorialize those lost in this decisive American conflict but encourage you to learn more about why this war occurred and how the fallout helped reimagine the future, not always for the better, of so many

TheArchive’s Mount Rushmore of the Conflicted

Image
This President’s day TheArchive honors the men who have led our country through conflict. Some have guided us past it while others caused it.   Either way, it’s challenging at the top and these stories of leadership have carved their way into our zeitgeist. In Ronald Reagan, The Hollywood Years, and Ronald Reagan, the Presidential Years , we track Reagan’s rise to power and his brush with the kind of conflict he could rise above. From that iconic moment on stage with Goldwater in 1964, to his governorship shortly thereafter, to his presidency, Reagan is celebrated as one of the most popular presidents of our time. But we also learn that the Iran-Contra affair certainly led to some unseen conflict that unraveled his favor but only for a short while. Reagan earned a nickname, the “Teflon president,” since conflict rarely seemed to stick to a leader of such profound popularity. Saving Lincoln explores the true story of Abraham Lincoln and his bodyguard, U.S. Marshal Ward Hill Lamon wh

The Long Way Home: Remembering the Holocaust

Image
On Holocaust Remembrance Day we honor the millions who perished and the millions whose eternal light continues to shine as a beacon of hope.  Humanity will triumph in the face of any challenge and transcend any wrong. Oscar winning documentary, The Long Way Home , echoes those ideals as it depicts the plight of Jewish refugees after World War II that contributed to the creation of the State of Israel.  The film examines the horrific conditions for Jewish refugees even in post-war Europe, as antisemitism was still prevalent and poverty the norm.  The formation of the State of Israel is explored, along with the ensuing debates around its formation. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, The Long Way Home features Edward Asner, Sean Astin, and Martin Landau. Never forget. TheArchive  channel is dedicated to aficionados and lovers of story, craft, and silver screen fun – streaming rare, retro, and 4K restored films and classic TV. From indies and series, to Oscar winning documentaries, unearthed MOW

High School to the Home Front: Veterans Around the World

Image
Beneath the Helmet explores the story of Five Israeli high school graduates drafted into the military. Eden Adler (First Lieutenant), Oren Giladi (Private), Mekonan Abebe (Private), Eilon Cohen (Private), Coral Amarani (Sergeant) enter training for eight months,  discovering their core values, unearthing emotions from the past, and learning that their teenage lives are now changed forever. The documentary highlights a few different positions the teens hold, ranging from First Lieutenant to Private, Sergeant and Commander.  Mekonan and Oren are both Privates, who emigrated to Israel from Ethiopia and Switzerland. After joining the army, the two became the best of friends — despite their different upbringing. The other three teens featured are Coral, Eden, and Eilon — all of whom hail from Israel.   Coral is from the affluent neighborhood of Herzliya Pituach and is a Sergeant at a pre-basic training program, working to get 12 soldiers integrated into the

Occult and Evil in the Horrors of Vietnam

Image
Written by Vietnam historian Peter Alan Lloyd,  M.I.A. A Greater Evil   is a thrilling horror film that touches on the conspiracy theories and notions surrounding the Vietnam War—those that suggest nearly 2,000 POWs were lost and kept captive in the jungles of Vietnam.  M.I.A.  deals with one of the great conspiracy theories of the 20th century, detailing the unknowns and the uncomfortable truths. In M.I.A. A Greater Evil, a group of American college students embark on an expedition in search of gold throughout the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. The college students (Valerie Bentson, Sarah Ball, and Mark Matula) are joined by their Geology professor in search of gold along a river in Vietnam.  With past stories of French gold miners finding riches within the waters, their intrigue is not deterred by rapids, detoured routes, or talk of the War and its ominous presence over the area. But their dreams of riches quickly unravel when an unintended detour leaves the group

Beyond the Mask: American Independence

With July 4 th falling on a Saturday, parties would normally be off the charts around the country. But this weekend, for so many reasons, celebrations may be more subdued. Celebrating our nation's independence will be a right and privilege each person here in the states can exercise and t his particular writer will be home with his family revisiting a popular TheArchive movie, BEYOND THE MASK . I thought it ironic given this Covid-19 time, that a film celebrating American independence would have such an apt title.    Beyond the Mask , in beautiful 4K, is an action-packed adventure romance set in 1776 during the turmoil of the Revolutionary war, bringing history to life in a story filled with liberty, freedom, and faith. Based on true events, the film features action, battles, and suspense, leading up to the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence.
