Product Description

After World War 2, the ever-present threat of war with the Soviet Union loomed, while concerns over Communist ideology seeping its way into American society created a 'Red Scare' that reached hysterical heights. These three films were produced by the government to not only warn of the supposed dangers posed by the Communist Party, but also explain how this new threat originated.

COMMUNISM (1950): This Armed Forces Information film, sometimes referred to as 'How to Spot a Communist' or 'Recognizing a Communist', was made to be viewed by members of the military.

THE CHALLENGE OF IDEAS (1961): Produced by the Department of Defense, this film explains the Cold War as a conflict of essential beliefs between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Featuring John Wayne.

THE ROAD TO THE WALL (1962): "Some walk...some ride...some are born on the way...but many will die along the "Road to the Wall." James Cagney narrates this recounting of the rise of communism around the world, culminating in the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961. Marx, Lenin, and Stalin are all profiled at length.

USA, 1962, B&W 94 minutes.Three films on one DVD.
