TITLE: ABOVE AND BEYOND
ABOVE AND BEYONDDIRECTORS: Melvin Frank, Norman Panama
Robert Taylor is Col. Paul Tibbets and Eleanor Parker is Lucy Tibbets in the "love story behind the billion dollar secret." As the tagline suggests, Hollywood actually managed to produce a romance set against the dropping of the first atomic bomb. Made for an audience still cheering the end of World War II and basking in an optimistic new age.
ABOVE AND BEYOND
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
OUR CITIES MUST FIGHT
Archer's other civil defense film ('Duck And Cover' being the more well known) is a ponderous examination of the dangers of civilians abandoning an A-bombed city. The story is presented as a dialog between two men, one of whom seems to be perpetually smoking and re-lighting a pipe, sitting in a poorly lit office.
