Good historical documentary of the first 15 years of the Atomic Age, 1945-1960, with archival historical films from various sources, both military and civilian, with television broadcasts and the famous "Duck and Cover" school films of the mid-1950s. Shockingly shows the original 16mm color film footage of the Atomic Bomb blast test in Nevada in 1954 in which dozens of U.S. Army soldiers were exposed to nuclear radiation to study its effects on them. Also noteworthy for contemporary pop music tunes with atomic age themes on the soundtrack. Originally when this movie was released in 1982, there was a soundtrack album on LP and CD available on Rounder Records, now out of print, with all the songs on it.

a dark comedy, more relevant today than when it first came out.

Great movie that uses old video and images to explain the dawn of the nuclear age. I use it in the classroom.

Gives you a good feel for how the 80s looked back on the 50s and 60s.

Nominally an ant-nuclear documentary, but a really good watch, and was useful for teaching my kids about the last Millennium.

A wonderful film, both comedic while also being a good primer on critical thinking.

A funny look at the ridiculous approaches to atomic war survival in the 50's
