Brings back memories of the 50s

when bomb shelters and civil defense were much discussed. There are actually four films in this documentary. Their titles are Operation Upshot-Knothole, Operation Cue, Operation Doorstop and Let's Face It. The first three deal with atomic blasts and their effects on surface structures. The last is a civil defense oriented film. All date from about 1953. Total time is 74 minutes. Quality of film ranged from fair to good. An impressive amount of time, effort and expense was spent running these tests.
