Cold War Films:
(Note:  Parents should preview these films.  Every parent/guardian has different standards concerning what they believe is appropriate for their students.  Some of the films below have content that some middle school parents may find objectionable.  I have listed the films to provide parents/guardians the opportunity to preview the films to determine content for themselves because they do have educational value.)
