Summary
Designed for children, this Prelinger Archives film--an icon of Cold War Civil Defense doctrine--boils down what to do in the event of an atomic attack to the simple concept of "duck and cover." The implicit message? That nuclear war with the Soviet Union was both unavoidable and survivable. Chilling! Selected for the 2004 National Film Registry of "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant" motion pictures.
