The Fighting Generation is a 1944 propaganda short film or public service announcement[1] produced for the U.S. Treasury Department and intended to boost war bond sales, directed by an uncredited Alfred Hitchcock and starring Jennifer Jones as a nurse's aide.

The film was shot in a single day, on October 9, 1944.[2] Rhonda Fleming and actors Steve Dunhill and Tony Devlin were to appear in the scene, according to a call sheet,[2] but in the end, only Jones appears on-screen.

The film survives in the Academy Film Archive.[1]
