TITLE: LI'L ABNER
DIRECTOR: Melvin Frank
Comedy ensues when the government decides to place an atomic test site in the town of Dogpatch, USA. Adapted from the Broadway musical based on Al Capp's popular comic strip. The film's surreal Technicolor charms age better than its satire. Watch for standout performances by Julie Newmar as Stupifyin' Jones and Stella Stevens as Appassionata Von Climax.
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.
