Somewhat off-topic: Have you ever seen a Brazilian movie called O homem do Sputnik (The Sputnik Man -- 1959)? I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't; Brazilian B-movies are hard to come by outside Brazil. There are torrents out there, but I won't link to them out of abject fear. But I trust you know how to find bittorrents.

It's a classic Cold War comedy, in the mode of Rocky & Bullwinkle or Dr. Strangelove, but from the perspective of a major non-aligned nation. I watched this a couple of weeks ago, and I can't get it out of my head. There's a real richness in that film, and a lot of gallows humor, that I think you'd be interested in.

Italy, as a NATO member, was never a non-aligned nation during the Cold War, but the Italian people were never completely on board with the official government position. That's what reminded me of O homem do Sputnik.

Neat thought, HP. News to me - and I can't get enough Coffin Joe. Will see what I can dig up.
