Running Time
1 Hr. 28 Min.
Watch this classic Cold War era documentary featuring archival footage from the 1940s and 1950s as Americans sought to grasp reality of the nuclear age and the horror of potential nuclear warfare. Released in 1982, at a time of high tensions in the Cold War, this documentary used dark humor to depict the ridiculousness of comprehending nuclear holocaust, presenting absurd newsreels, military training films, nuclear testing footage, propaganda films, and other early footage of the nuclear era. You’ll see clips from the classic “Duck and Cover” civil defense film, along with the building of fallout shelters, footage from the “Red Scare” of McCarthyism, and the nuclear pop culture that surrounded the 1950s Cold War. This documentary is offered for free on the Kino Lorber YouTube channel.
