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
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.
