All of us in OLLI were around during the Cold War Era. Some of us will vividly remember the HUAC/McCarthy Communist “witch hunts,” the Korean War, the U-2 spy plane incident, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. These events occurred over a span of 45 years until the collapse of the Soviet Union. Many classic movies based on Cold War events, real or fictional, were made during this era and will be shown during our fall study group. No book is required for the group: Robert J. McMahon’s, The Cold War: A Very Short Introduction, (Oxford University Press, 2003) is optional but provides helpful historical context for participants during the discussions following the film showings. Among the movies we will watch: The Manchurian Candidate, Pork Chop Hill, Goodnight and Good Luck, Dr. Strangelove, Bridge of Spies, The Falcon and the Snowman. Join us for a cinematic trip through this tense and troubling time in our history.
