TITLE: RED MENACE
THE RED MENACE
DIRECTOR: R. G. Springsteen
Star Robert Rockwell is a disgruntled WWII vet who is seduced into joining the Communist Party by Hanne Axman. Note that the front for the Communists is a bar called "Club Domino." The Daily People's World, a Communist newspaper, reviewed THE RED MENACE upon its release and demanded that the "lies" of the film be met with "the blazing truth of the people's anger."
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
Some may have thought that it was wonderfully civic minded of the Burroughs Corporation to sponsor a film about vital records storage as a component of civil defense, but when 'Bombproof' suddenly turns into an infomercial for the microfilm industry, the company's true motive becomes quite clear.
