On the surface, life in America during the 1950s was a time of bright optimism and unparalleled technological advancement. Employment was up and prosperity was still within the grasp of the average working family. President Eisenhower seemed to have the situation well in hand. But with the recently ended World War, and the dangerous war now being fought in Korea, America had officially entered the Nuclear Age. This new era of heightened scientific curiosity, combined with growing concerns about the future contributed to a period of considerable anxiety--one that spawned a dark cinematic vision in the form of low-budget speculative science fiction films.

Audiences embraced these strangely exciting pictures with enthusiastic passion, making them among the highest grossing films of the decade.

Each of the six films, all enduring examples of a largely misunderstood and maligned genre, will be viewed in their entirety and discussed with respect to their meanings and subtexts--without losing sight of the purely fascinating entertainment value they provide. From the poetic musings of Ray Bradbury to the amazing special effects of Ray Harryhausen--and beyond, COLD WAR SHIVERS promises to be an eye and mind-opening experience!

Class instructor is Elliot Lavine.

The Thing from Another World (1951), It Came from Outer Space (1953), Them! (1954), Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)

"The director and screenwriter is Gus Van Sant, who makes movies that conform to no recognizable templates, and Joaquin Phoenix (who plays Callahan) is one among the most thrillingly unpredictable film actors alive...when his high-wire emotional arc suits the movie, there are few who can touch him."
-- David Edelstein, New York Magazine
