More often than not, producers and directors have a tendency of exaggerating history in order to make extraordinary movies. These exceptional movies cause viewers to root for the hero and hold grudges against the villain. As a result, the movies’ depiction of the main character and that character’s enemies slips into a typical misconception of what truly happened in history. Movies such as The Patriot and The Alamo effectively follow this model. Although they make extremely great movies, these movies are also making inaccurate history.
America's entry into World War II interrupted Ronald Reagan's career in Hollywood. A captain in the United States Army Air Corps, he was assigned the task of producing training films to prepare soldiers for combat. After the war, Ronald Reagan returned to acting in the movies. Ronald Reagan's turn to political activity had begun several years earlier, when he was president of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) from 1947 to 1952. He served a final term as SAG president from 1959 to 1960.

The Cold War was a brutal standoff between Russia and the United States. In the early stages of the Cold War many people feared the rise of communists and the possibility of nuclear destruction. The Cold War had many social, economic and military aspects, and the film, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, represented many of these aspects, but in a humorous way. The film centered around what would happen if a rogue military officer initiated a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and how the U.S. leadership would react. General Turgidson was a character from the film who was in the war room with all of the U.S. leaders discussing the threat of nuclear destruction.
The Cold War was a developed relationship after World War Two between the United States of America and the Soviet Union. It was to dominate international affairs for many decades. They fought each other, but they did fight for their beliefs. Cold War means the conflict never grew to a full confrontational war, but there was some fighting. It lasted forty-five years.
The cold war was marked by the existence of political and economic enmity between U.S. and the Soviet Union in 1945 to 1991. From the primary sources we discussed in class, it is clear that the rivalry between these two super powers was because of political and economic competition. The competition was between the communist of the Soviet Union together with its allies and the democratic capitalism of U.S. together with its allies. In addition, the rise of the cold war between 1945 and 1991 was as result diplomatic and military competition between the two nations. The period of cold war was characterized by remarkable increase in military spending, increased tensions, hyperbolic rhetoric by the two leaders of the nations and millions of World
National identity, that sense of cohesion on a national scale as a unified whole, given to its people through culture, language, tradition; and of course varying depending on the different echelons of society within a nation. In the case of India these boundaries are set rather firmly in light of the social stratification known as the caste system. Caste in its simplest form being a system of social ranking that is determined by one’s birth. In the film Bandit Queen this is called into question, and if one were to critique the film in relation to this pieces outline, it would seem that rather than giving one a sense of any one dominant construction of national identity it opposingly, due to this form of social structure, gives the viewer a sense the countries lack of an explicit one. But then again perhaps it is our own western prejudice to think of a national identity as a unified whole rather than an assimilation of many subgroups of identities within a nation.
The Cold War is an interesting war, because it seems to be caused by a mutual disinterest in actual war. The Soviet Union seems to hope for peace to rebuild itself in the wake of World War ||, and the United States also did not seem to want conflict. It seems like every issue that arose during the Cold War was directly in relation to both sides wanting to avoid war. Yet even as both sides try to deter the other, they are actively preparing in case deterrence doesn’t work.
The Cold War was so called because of its lack of direct fighting between the two major powers. Instead, it was a proxy war, in which smaller countries fought on behalf of the primary powers. It escalated as a result of the ideological opposition between American capitalism and Russian communism and became a prominent factor in American life during the second half of the 20th century. As the two dominant powers following the second World War, contention between the two became a global conflict. The element that made the Cold War different from other wars was its significant use of propaganda, but its impacts were hardly “cold”.
The Cold War was a state of geopolitical tension after World War II between powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its satellite states) and powers in the Western Bloc (the United States, its NATO allies and others). Historians do not fully agree on the dates, but a common timeframe is the period between 1947, the year the Truman Doctrine (a U.S. foreign policy pledging to aid nations threatened by Soviet expansionism) was announced, and 1991, the year the Soviet Union collapsed. The term "cold" is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides involved in the conflict, although there were major regional wars, known as proxy wars, supported by the two sides. The Cold War split the temporary wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the Soviet Union and the United States as two superpowers with profound economic and political differences.
