Cinema History from the Cold War!

Live and in Motion!

No longer just represented by a series of photographs and screen captured images, Atomicfilmsite offers a few full length, fully viewable films.  Taken off 16mm filmstrips via camcorder, their quality is dubious, but the message still gets across and they make for excellent and entertaining watches!  Each of these films was created in 1967 by the Office of Civil Defense, Department of the Army to inform the public and to train Radiological Defense officers.  Click the links and enjoy!
