Big 3 & Berlin: Concern Mounts as Deadline Approaches (film #91 on Universal Newsreels). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

50s newsreel clip documenting arguments between Krushchev and Eisenhower over the status of Berlin, which had been divided in half in reflection of the status of East and West Germany. The clip from Eisenhower’s speech, in which he argues against general mobilization, has lots of historical value.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
