Movie Reviews

Amazing forgotten pieces of history
11/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've collected all of these, as well as "Atomic Cafe", and "Trinity & beyond"(which is terrific). "At Ground Zero" is a collection of 4 seperate films, all shot at the Nevada test site, just outside Las Vegas. Two of the films cover the same test, from different perspectives. One produced for the public and one produced just for the government."
Probably the best of the 3 videos in this series...
Robert Garrett | Hollywood, CA | 11/07/1999

"This video is from original military films produced in the 1950's and 1960's by the Civil Defense and at Lookout Mountain Air Force film studio in Hollywood, CA. The "Operation CUE" section is particularly interesting; it gives a very telling view of our mindset during the 1950's regarding the survivability of a nuclear attack. A "typical housewife" guides us through the famous nuke test that was the first to be televised live. She shows us how a typical family and home would fare in an attack. It was meant to give confidence, but the disclamer tagged to the end of the film says, to paraphrase...these results are for a 20 KILOTON nuclear blast, an actual attack would probably use a multi MEGATON device...your milage may vary... Anyway, you get the idea. I've actually had fun running this section at parties. If you want a factual and more entertaining (in the normal sense) video on this topic, get "Trinity and Beyond", but if your interest goes deeper, I recommend these videos, especially volume #3."
Quite unspectacular

"Dry diagrams and commentary, typical army instruction film. Interesting to historians, not to me."
Good historical footage.

"If you are looking for a well polished documentary, Trinity & Beyond is the best bet. This is a collection are old Army films, straight on to the DVD. Personally, I love these for sentimental reasons, and for historical interest. I would not want them altered in any way, and was very pleased with this purchase."
