Module 10 Discussion: The Iron Curtain Falls

Watch the short film “Duck and Cover” from The Atomic CafĂ©, a compilation of archival film clips created by the U.S. government during the mid 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s, a period that marks the beginning of the Cold War: the intense period of conflict between the U.S. and the Soviet Union between 1945 and 1989. Not only did these two ideologically opposed nations fight a global struggle for political influence during this lengthy time period, but also, each side believed that the other was bent on its annihilation.


1. What does this clip convey about Americans’ attitude towards the atomic bomb and the Cold War during the 1940s and 1950s?

2. Do you think this film is propaganda: the active manipulation of opinion by distortion or concealment of the truth? Why or why not?
