I had heard of, but never seen, the US 1950's propaganda movie 'Duck And Cover'. I knew it was appallingly inadequate, like the leaflets and 'public information films' in the UK that suggested setting a mattress at an angle to the wall and hiding the whole family behind it. What I didn't realise was that, in the middle of being totally ineffectual, the entire film was targeted at what look like seven and eight year olds. Was America that ready to be blown up, that they terrified a whole generation? As if my mind was desperate to tangentialise in the middle of all this, I couldn't help noticing how fat and unfit the 'expertly trained fire service' appeared to be. Put it this way, none of them had to tuck their willies out of the way, coming down the pole. Its just under ten minutes long.
Here it is - click on the picture.
If you fancy something just as mindboggling, but in a completely different way, then this next one is a one and a half minute clip from a 1970's TV extravaganza produced in Finland, and is almost hypnotic in its erm,...........
words fail me.
Get the groovy close-up on the fancy footwork, dude.
