    Description

    The Atomic Cafe (Libra Films, 1982). One Sheet (27" X 41"). "When not close enough to be killed, the atomic bomb is one of the most beautiful sights in the world." Yeah, right. In the 50s, when fears of atomic war were rampant, the U.S. government put out propaganda films to reassure the American public that everything was all right. This film exposes the idiocy of those times, with such scenes as "Duck and Cover" and the Army troops walking towards an atomic blast. This tri-folded one sheet has very light fold wear, but is otherwise in mint condition. The poster features the iconic image of a child in a radiation suit, with the bomb behind him. Near Mint/Mint.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
