Another 16mm film in the strange series made by American Civil Defense in the early 1970's for various preparations for disasters of all kinds. This reel is mostly pink and required a lot of correction. I transferred this reel with my Eiki Telecine, so enjoy!

    Anyone remember the heat wave in the late 90s? heat Strock people passing out leading to the govt having cops and doctors on bikes handing out water with signs all over telling people to drink water. Seems it is happening again now.

    kinda surreal with the music, isn't it?

    It looks like this was filmed during a 60 degree day. No one's hair is actually sweaty. And most people in the passers-by scenes are wearing long pants, as are the two future NBA stars.

    Peter Thomas narrates. He and Alexander Scourby narrated everything during the era of my youth. Love their voices.

    Way before the global warming became a problem talked over and over (and still denied by some asshats, meh). Will definitely be useful in the future – more and more, I fear.

    Nice lightbulb signage. I wonder how all these not so teeny weeny bulbs were controlled. Not sure if they used electromechanical switching, or diode logic like I would.
    And I wonder if a theremin was used in the musical score. Some backward playback certainly was.
