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:
A U.S. scientist (Paul Newman) pretends to defect to follow his mentor behind the Iron Curtain. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. (1966), not rated, 125 minutes.
