Narrated by actor Glenn Ford, this brilliantly produced documentary made by CBS is of a mock evacuation of Portland, Oregon during a nuclear attack. The film shows how a typical American city can evacuate its citizens in a safe and timely manner when under threat of an atomic bomb assault. A wonderful piece of the history of the atomic bomb, the film utilizes expert timing and narration to elicit a feeling of dread and suspense that would accompany such a disaster. But organization and readiness are stressed, allowing the emergency to be coped with. This is a great civil defense film and one of the best movies in Portland ever shot that details the evacuation routes and emergency procedures necessary to keep a city safe against the threat of nuclear war.

This Duck and Cover civil defense film is the original "nuclear attack safety film" that assures children protection from atomic bombs by getting low to the ground and covering up. A pillar of 1950s history, this hilariously ineffective nuclear survival technique has been satirically mimicked on countless occasions. The cutesy film features the animated character Bert the Turtle showing kids the classic “duck and cover” way to survive a nuclear attack. Bert is walking down the street, minding his own business, while the “duck and cover” theme song plays in the background: There was a turtle by the name of Bert and Bert the turtle was very alert; when danger threatened him he never got hurt he knew just what to do... He ducked! [inhalation sound] And covered! Ducked! [inhalation sound] And covered! A monkey in a tree then dangles a little piece of dynamite in Burt’s face, causing Burt to hide in his shell for cover, escaping the resulting explosion that takes out both the monkey and the tree! The film then switches to a live action family picnicking and the narrator advises children that when they see the flash of the bomb, they can survive as long as they crouch down and take cover. Duck and Cover is a riotous classic film exemplifying American governmental fear prevention and political propaganda.

Survival Under Atomic Attack is a 1951 Civil Defense film which focuses on what the average American can do to protect himself if caught out in the open or at home during a nuclear attack. Narrated by the magnificent journalist Edward R. Murrow, the film shows clips of actual nuclear bomb tests interspersed with dramatizations of citizens huddling in gutters, houses, and fallout shelters. Murrow advises the audience that the worst thing to do after an attack is to flee the area, saying that the enemy would love for our factories, offices, and homes to be empty and unproductive. Instead, he suggests, people should take cover for a short time and then continue working and producing. The dangers of nuclear fallout are not discussed and Murrow even cites Japan as an example for both how dangerous nuclear bombs can be (if they’d known how to take cover, lives could have been saved), and how benign fallout is (Murrow says that most Japanese survivors did not suffer from radiation sickness). Through editing, many different scenes of interest are shown including an air-raid alert, bomb blasts, and a typical American family preparing for an attack. Engrossing for its use of powerful historical footage and for its blatantly false optimism about the effect of nuclear war, Survival Under Atomic Attack is a powerful civil defense film that will amaze viewers. Cold War propaganda is one of the most insidious types of propaganda, and it's at a fever pitch in this film.

A frightening look at how industrialists proposed to apply nuclear power to all facets of American life, Atoms for Peace is a nonstop promotion of nuclear energy that tragically stresses the harmlessness and efficiency of nuclear energy. Nuclear power was one of the fastest growing fields in the twentieth century and this film is a landmark in nuclear power history. For example, nuclear power was embraced by the oil industry by utilizing radioisotopes to save the industry nearly a half a million dollars a year through the use of atomic tracers in the oil. The film enumerates the uses of nuclear energy, which includes how particles can tell scientists about the affects of aging on car engines, the length of paper or sheet metal in a factory, and help find microscopic flaws in metals. Perhaps the biggest advancement with isotopes is in the energy sector. For example, atomic scientists tell the viewer, much more energy is stored in a small amount of uranium compared to coal. Nuclear energy can be an alternative energy form for places that currently have no electricity. It will take quite some time before nuclear energy can be a competitive form of energy in the United States. However, a promising study just took place in which test administrators shut off the electrical power in a mock city and replaced electric with nuclear power. The lights came back on. Nuclear research also has a big affect in American agriculture. Scientists are now able to study plants in all new ways. They can build stronger, better plants. Fertilizers are being tested and improved. Great strides have been made against disease. With the help of atomic energy, pharmaceuticals are developing medicines and possible cures for cancer, leukemia, and diabetes. Researchers have even found that atomic energy can shrink tumors and kill cancer cells. Atoms of Peace gives a fascinating historical sense of the perception of nuclear power and its projected uses. The advantages and disadvantages of nuclear power are not fairly weighed in this classically biased promotional video.

This 1964 film by the Department of Defense’s Office of Civil Defense was an attempt to outline the effects of a nuclear blast on American soil using a Nevada test site in 1955, and the a more powerful nuclear weapons test in 1964. An important part of American military history, the army conducted elaborate atomic bomb tests, which required the building of power lines, transformers, and a complete substation that would imitate the damage that would be sustained on American infrastructures. In order to better gauge the effects of nuclear radiation, five different kinds of furnished houses were also built, and dummies wearing civilian clothes were set up in the test area. At one point, reporter Joan Collins observes that after the blast, the clothes on the test dummies have faded. Collins takes the viewer from the planning phase of the tests to the actual blast site itself, showing the audience how to minimize their own exposure in the event of an atomic attack. The film also demonstrates the differences between the 1955 and the 1964 tests. Canned food exposed during the 1955 blast was later eaten, the film claims, while in 1964, knowledge of radiation poisoning was better understood. This film contains some of the most amazing footage ever taken of nuclear blasts and effectively shows the destructive power of these weapons. The effects of the atomic bomb are staggering, and this film captures the devastating, huge explosions that are capable of mass destruction.

Produced by Encyclopedia Britannica Films, this video seeks to educate American schoolchildren on how to take cover in the event of a nuclear warning or attack. The child safety tips are dated and hilarious, consider what little help covering up is against a nuclear weapon or a nuclear explosion. Three different situations are shown, including when children are at school, at home, or at a playground. Children are shown cowering against buildings and hiding in basements. Fictional characters, Sue and Ted, are shown at home alone during an attack. The narrator even recommends that children caught outside far from home enter a random house for shelter, advising them that “strangers will understand.” The film also gives a simplified explanation of how nuclear bombs work throughout the lessons on child home safety. This is a classic Cold War era propaganda film that is light on atomic bomb facts and heavy on reassuring government rhetoric.

A is for Atom, an award winning short film, promotes the peacetime applications of atomic energy. The animated residents of Element Town illustrate nuclear fission – the process of an atom splitting that produces byproducts, including massive amounts of nuclear energy. The film is a cutesy plug for all the advantages of nuclear power while answering the question "what is an atom?" Known for its destruction in the past, atomic energy is represented as a harmless figure, which, with “man’s wisdom, on his firmness in the use of that power,” can be controlled and purposed for better things. Nuclear medicine is one of the stressed uses. Still an effective teaching resource today, A is for Atom is a clever depiction of the history of the atom that will entertain children and adults with its 1950's style presentation of what nuclear fission reactions could mean for the future of America.
