This institutional film was designed to promote Chevrolet's corporate citizenship rather than any specific model of automobile. While it forcefully demonstrates how central automobile manufacturing is to the American economy, it even more strikingly shows the effects of the automobile upon our landscape. Bombastic narration is accompanied by excellent images of automobile manufacturing, the extraction and processing of raw materials from the earth, and mid-1950s consumerism. Cinematography:...

Auto travelogue through the sights, monuments and mythologies of America's heartland. A jaded newspaper reporter returns from a long stint in Europe, takes to the highways of the Midwest, and discovers a father-daughter team who help him to realize that his true home lies in mid-America. A fascinating view of Midwestern and Great Plains natural and historical attractions, and a strong statement that mobility equals freedom.

A percussive reworking of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumble Bee" - as a B-Movie soundtrack with lots of cars and fighting - lots of flash and crash. Modernist jazz of the late 20th Century hovering on the point of rejecting Italian Futurism in favour of International Dada and entering the postmodern vacuum. Art from the dimension where philosophical movements never never end.

Made in 1950, "You Can Beat the Atomic Bomb" shows the various modes of Civil Defense that were being developed to protect the American population in the event of a nuclear war.  As part of the effort the film attempts to educate people about the survivability of the bomb and the radiation it emits.  In an era before the hydrogen bomb, these facts were somewhat salient; but once the thermonuclear weapons became a reality films such as this one were obsolete.  According to the film,...
