Sold - The Sinking of the Lusitania 1918 Winsor McCay Studios

The Sinking of the Lusitania (1918) is an animated short film by American artist Winsor McCay. It features a short 12-minute explanation of the sinking of the RMS Lusitania after it was struck by two torpedoes (now known to be struck by only one torpedo) fired from a German U-boat. The film was one of many animated silent films published to create anti-German sentiment during World War I.
