Duck and Cover (1951)



Duck and Cover

(1951)

9 minutes.

Documentary

Selected for the 2004 National Film Registry of 'culturally, historically and aesthetically significant' motion pictures. Duck and Cover was a method of personal protection against the effects of a nuclear detonation which the United States government taught to generations of American school children from the late 1940's into the 1980's. This was supposed to protect them in the event of an unexpected nuclear attack which, they were told, could come at any time without warning . Immediately after they saw a flash, they had to stop what they were doing and get on the ground under some cover such as a table, or at least next to a wall and assume fetal position, lying face down and covering their heads with their hands.
