Duck and Cover (1951)

HI, here a funny but scary movie founded by Antonio in the Internet Archive.

Duck and Cover (1951) is a (scary) film about how to mislead population by mass media hysteria. This movie seems to be an educational one targeted to kids and young population but what it does create, is a perpetual state of fear and paranoia typical during the cold war.

After 9:15 you should know what to do in case a nuclear bomb explodes nearby. Just remember the catchphrase “Duck and Cover“, I mean pure and simple terror propaganda.

Definitely a worth watching video.
