"The Atom and Eve"

Produced in 1965 by a consortium of utility companies to promote electricity
use and nuclear power, this blend of male chauvinism and conspicuous
consumption now provokes both outrage and uproarious laughter as the film
follows a scantily-clad housewife through her all-electric day. Proven
popular with women's and anti-nuclear groups, as well as in classes where
the nuclear propaganda battle is a subject. 15 mins.

Item# VHS: S31102
Price: $24.95

"Bell Science Series: The Strange Case of the Cosmic Rays"

The mysteries of the universe are revealed in this fun and fact-filled
galactic thriller. Elements of the atom, powerful particles and radiation
research are presented in a simple and easily understood format. Puppetry by
Bill & Cora's Marionettes. Animation by Shamus Culhane. Directed by Frank
Capra. 55 mins.

Item# VHS: S14227
Price: $9.95

Does anyone know where to locate the title "Atom & Eve" or have any ideas
for films promoting the use of nuclear energy (in a 50's kind of way)?

Thanks loads.
