Description by

At the dawn of the nuclear age, Albert Einstein warned the world of "the danger of unimaginable destruction and wanton annihilation" that would ensue if mankind should elect to utilize the new weapons at his disposal. This collection of short subjects reflects mankind's atomic dilemma. Would the infinite power of the atom be harnessed to bring heaven to the earth, or would mankind reduce itself to cinders?

ATOMIC ENERGY CAN BE A BLESSING (1952): Fred MacMurray and Father James Keller combine to inform us that atomic energy needn't be a force of destruction. Father Keller demonstrates that the atom holds infinite potential for great advances in medicine and science and is actually a great blessing.

SURVIVAL UNDER ATOMIC ATTACK (1951): Rather than fear an atomic attack, we are taught how to survive it. Proper preparation is detailed which will make our citizens much more able to survive than say, the inhabitants of Nagasaki. A chilling testament of the Cold War.

THE ATOM (1957): This color short presented by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce teaches us how the "peaceful" atom is at work making our world a better place. We are shown the wonders that abound in the fields of energy, agriculture and medicine. Atomic energy will replace coal and oil while the flawless safety designs of modern nuclear energy facilities makes them great neighbors.

THE BASIC PHYSICS OF AN ATOM BOMB (1950): Presented by The Armed Forces Special Weapons Project, this delightful color short is a primer to teach our troops the physics which enable our nuclear weapons to release their awesome power.
