Time to Turtle

If you're already thinking "roll" before the "stop" and "drop" preamble has been completed, or if you understand that you are exponentially better positioned to survive a nuclear strike if you duck and cover beneath a desk, chances are your life has been enriched by a helpful educational film or two. Get ready for more valuable lessons and entertainment with an evening of classic educational chestnuts centered on the theme of patriotism and good citizenship, and springing from the deliciously weird soil of the Cold War. How to Be a Patriotic American: Vintage Educational Films -- featuring "Duck and Cover" and its star, Bert the Turtle -- screens at 6:30 p.m. at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; 314-746-4599 or www.mohistory.org).
