The Cultural Effects Of The Cold War
Movies back during the Cold War were always good guy vs. bad, but it was who played the role as them. It was always the Russians as the bad guys, and the Americans/British were the good guys. Movies such as Indiana Jones portrayed this throughout the whole series. Also, look back on the James Bond movies during this time. It was always James Bond vs. The Soviet Union. Same goes for any spy movie during this time. These spy movies provoked paranoia between both the Soviet Union and the United States. However, the United States were not the only ones to use cinema as a weapon. The Soviet Union started using this tactic in 1946. In fact, 45.6% of the Soviets movies were portraying the bad guy as either American or British. However, the Soviets’ movies were not very popular because of the popularity of American films.
