Ladybug Ladybug is a 1960s film and a commentary on the fear and paranoia of the Cold War. It is directed by Academy Award nominee, Frank Perry. The film begins with a nuclear bomb warning alarm at a rural school somewhere in the Midwest. The teachers are asked to take their pupils to a nuclear shelter immediately. Neither the teachers nor the kids realize that the alarm was tripped by mistake. They head for the bomb shelter as their fear and paranoia slowly grows. They become hostile and angry, taking verbal stabs at one another, and soon even the teachers join in. This film reveals the truly primeval nature of humans when they are faced with danger or an incredible need to survive. It is the film debut for stars William Daniels and Estelle Parsons. These actors will go on to star in such films as "The Graduate", "A Thousand Clowns" and "Rachel Rachel."
