LEARN MORE

We’ve curated some books and movies that invite you to learn more about the terrifying insanity of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the tragically banal film career of Elvis Presley. 

BOOKS

Elvis! Elvis! Elvis! The King and His Movies by Peter Guttmacher (includes soundtrack CD). A great deep-dive into the King’s movies (although, inexplicably, does not include The Swingin’ Astronaut)

Thirteen Days – A Memoir of the Cuban Missile Crisis by Robert F. Kennedy and Arthur Schlesinger. The closest the world has ever come to nuclear annihilation, by the folks in the room. Thank goodness Mynx was there to figure it out!

MOVIES

Speedway, Kissin’ Cousins, Harum ScarumChoose an Elvis movie from the 1960’s, any Elvis movie. They all live in an alternate universe of surreal mediocrity, with a subtext of despair – Elvis, how could you?? (Oh well, let’s forget that and just “Do the Clam!”)

Dr. Strangelove. Our vote for greatest comedy ever made, and the most insightful statement about the absurdity of America’s Cold War “mutually assured destruction” face-off with the Russkys. “We’ll Meet Again, Don’t Know Where, Don’t Know When…”
