It was a different time......
14 August 2008 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

We had just defeated the Nazis... Most of Europe was in ruins. There were two major powers left... The USA & the USSR with quite differing & opposing world views. The specter of nuclear annihilation from the Soviets was quite real & palpable. It was the post war era of the COLD WAR. I grew up with Bert the turtle & duck & cover drills. It was dark time in world history.

Anyone who doesn't think the COLD WAR was deadly serious business, unlike the spy novels of the era, need only look to the Berlin airlift & the space race for confirmation that it was indeed played on the world stage for very REAL objectives!

What you see in this movie may look hokey 57 years later in 2008, one reviewer likened it to "propaganda," but it in fact underscores not only the values which built the USA but those that eventually caused the USSR to collapse and the only major Communist country left, China, to adopt many of the ideas & freedoms of the USA in its own daily practices.

Our founding fathers had it right our freedoms DO flow from Providence & not from man nor any government not set upon those freedoms! As for the Christophers I agree & have for 50+ years. Use your God given talents to make the world a better place - YOU can change the world!
