RED SCARE FILMS

For the purposes of this comprehensive inventory, CONELRAD has grouped many of the different subgenres of Cold War instructional movies under the umbrella title, "Civil Defense Short Subject Films." RED SCARE features anti-communist films that warn of the true aim of the Red Menace.
Produced for the CIA. One of the more direct film titles that we've encountered. This infamous red scare film was put together from television newsreel footage of the May 1960 House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) hearings in San Francisco, its attendant student protests, and the riotous police action (fire hoses used on City Hall protesters) that followed. Citizen, Communist, Counterspy, Herbert A. Philbrick, did indeed live three lives, but his fourth—and longest—life was spent speaking out against the "Communist Menace"... for a reasonable fee.
