Summary Just as America envisioned Communist threats during much of the 20th century, the specter of capitalism loomed large in the Soviet Cold War psyche. This program surveys Soviet animated propaganda, embodying that fiercely anti-capitalist spirit. Foreshadowing the space race, Interplanetary Revolution depicts a Communist triumph over free-market forces on Mars; China in Flames warns against capitalist interference in the Chinese Revolution; Shareholder proclaims the superiority of the Soviet economic system; and Proud Little Ship takes on capitalist aggression.
Contents Interplanetary revolution (1924) -- We'll keep our eyes peeled (1927) -- The shareholder (1963) -- Proud little ship (1966) -- Prophets and lessons (1967) -- China in flames (1925).
