The Big Chill

Passport Episode 2 | 56m 41s

This episode traces how the Cold War and Pentagon dollars fund the explosive growth of modern Los Angeles and create the military-industrial-complex. Entire suburbs such as Lakewood are built in record time to house defense industry workers, while also restricting non-white races from living there. Fear of nuclear annihilation spawns the science-fiction genre for Hollywood.
