  • Good information, thanks for posting!






    Seriously, I love these kind of old films. Back in the 1950's the US was an industrial powerhouse, but scared shitless of instant death.

  • Duck and cover! Yea, right.

    More like light up a bong and toss back a bottle.



    A bottle of fresh water and a few canned goods? More like months of supply.

  • I lived through the tail end of this paranoid thinking. By the 60's most people I grew up with had stopped worring about nuclear destruction as the world wouldn't be worth living in. Almost like Alfred E Neuman "What me worry?" Thanks Cleaner

  • These films were just so much propaganda. In order for the military/industrial complex to keep building bigger and more expensive high-profit weapons they worked with the Government to first, scare people that we needed these "defensive" weapons while at the same time trying to convince us that one could survive an exchange of atomic/nuclear weapons with an enemy. All of it was bullshit. They knew that when this film was produced.

    In the film they talk about surviving the main threats More..

    • @downhill2400 And yet there was a man who survived the blast at Hiroshima, evacuated to Nagasaki, survived that blast, and died as a very old man not to long ago. These weapons are indeed terrible, but they did and do serve a legitimate purpose.

    Thanks cleaner for vid, but I think you have little or no chance for survival should a nuke strike happen.

  • Interesting stuff. They obviously surveyed what caused problems during the real A-bomb attacks, and this is the result. Good old-fashioned science.
