Proposed Double Features #4

Proposed Double Feature: "Bang! You're Dead!" and The War Game

Two early '60s b/w shorts (the AHP runs 26 minutes, The War Game is a brisk 15) devoted to the most harrowing subject imaginable: a child with a gun. Each is a masterpiece of grueling tension, the horror of our inability to intervene. Essential viewing, both, and you can crack 'em both out in no longer than it'd take to watch a Breaking Bad.
