Join us every Monday afernoon at 2:00 pm for a flashback to the cinema of the Cold War.
The American and Soviet struggle during the 20th century was waged as much culturally as it was politically, and Hollywood made a number of films with Cold War themes—some overt, and some more subtle. As the decades wore on, attitudes shifted, which is reflected in the cinematic works of the 1980s and beyond.
A complete list of titles may be obtained in the library, but here is a clue for the next showing:
Agent 007 (Sean Connery) is sent to assist in the defection of Soviet consulate clerk Tatiana Romanova in Turkey, where SPECTRE plans to avenge Bond's killing of Dr. No. (1963), not rated, 115 minutes.
