FILM & HISTORY covers The Cold War
The current issue of Film & History is 31.1 and is edited by Phil Landon,
veteran of the US Army during the Cold War and retired professor now
rusticating in Maine.
The current issue of Film & History explores a selection of films, both
American and European, which suggest the many and often complex ways in which
the values of the Cold War culture found their ways into a variety of film
genres including political thrillers, westerns, boxing films, domestic
melodramas, and even cartoons. Cold War conflicts formed the ideological
subtexts in films as seemingly dissimilar as My Darling Clementine and the
Road Runner and Coyote series. The films addressed in this issue date from
the early years of the Cold War, the later 1940s and the early 1950s. The
essays in the next issue will turn their attention to the films of the later
Cold War years-which, by the end of the decade would escalate into
hostilities which threatened to plunge the world into nuclear war.
