TITLE: IRON GIANT
THE IRON GIANT
DIRECTOR: Brad Bird
An adaptation of the Ted Hughes book, this animated feature concerns a boy's friendship with a robot from outer space. The screenplay satirizes fifties cold war paranoia as well as sci-fi films of the era. Watch for the delightful 'cartoon-in-a-cartoon' treatment of the classic DUCK AND COVER!
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.
