TITLE: RED NIGHTMARE
DIRECTOR: George WaGGner
Jerry Donovan is a complacent citizen whose world is turned upside down by All-American muse and narrator Jack Webb. He finds a town where churches have been turned into Soviet exhibit halls and children leave home to work on collective farms to free themselves of the "lingering bourgeois influences of family life." Before you can say "deviationism," Jerry is tried and convicted of crimes against the state and executed. But Jerry's dream has, as Webb says,"impressed" him and he resolves not to miss any more PTA meetings.
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.
