    An incisive examination of the historical roots of the Cold War and its effects on American life. The film features a wealth of images and historical footage from both European and American archives as well as a series of revealing interviews with some of the key players, on both sides, in the events of the last forty years. A special focus of the film is the role of the mass media in shaping attitudes about the Cold War, with illustrations, simultaneously comic and chilling, from Hollywood features, TV programs, and animated cartoons.
