Summary
America in the 50s. An iconic decade that featured Eisenhower's presidency, the birth of rock and roll, tail fins, drive-ins, and the ascendancy of television as a cultural force. Have you ever wondered what to do if the Communists captured you, the story of Smokey the Bear, or how to survive an atomic bomb? This collection of highlights from newsreels for each year of the decade, short films, and an assortment of movie trailers captures the essence of the decade, its newsmakers, sports heroes, movie stars, the "latest" fashions, and much more from this unforgettable era
