The CONELRAD 100 of Atomic Films

TITLE: RED MENACE

A shocking story torn from yesterday's headlines!


THE RED MENACE

DIRECTOR: R. G. Springsteen
YEAR: 1949

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
OCCUPYING A PUBLIC SHELTER
