TITLE: SPECIAL BULLETIN
DIRECTOR: Edward Zwick
Anti-nuclear scientists place a homemade nuke on a tugboat in Charleston, South Carolina. They take a news crew hostage and go live. This realistic, made-for-TV movie was originally presented as a fake breaking news story on NBC. Don't touch that dial or you'll miss a humdinger of an ending.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
OUR CITIES MUST FIGHT
Archer's other civil defense film ('Duck And Cover' being the more well known) is a ponderous examination of the dangers of civilians abandoning an A-bombed city. The story is presented as a dialog between two men, one of whom seems to be perpetually smoking and re-lighting a pipe, sitting in a poorly lit office.
