DIRECTOR: Frederick Wiseman
Wiseman focuses his trademark extra long take documentary style on a class of Air Force Officers training to become Minuteman Launch Missileers. The giddy hugs and high fives of two students who just made a successful, simulated launch of their two nukes is worth the price of admission. Also, don't miss the graduation speech by an Air Force General, who is one of the Looking Glass aircraft commanders.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
COMMUNITY SHELTER PLANNING
While many film scholars may point to Gene Hackman's break-out role in 1967's BONNIE AND CLYDE as the cinematic vehicle that molded him into the kind of thespian that INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO host James Lipton salivates over, CONELRAD has discovered another role that no doubt made him the performer he is today: "Regional Field Officer" in 1966's COMMUNITY SHELTER PLANNING, a government civil defense film. Yes, the future Popeye Doyle once appeared in an atomic safety film.
