I have been searching for, in a very informal manner, a 16mm
found-footage film, "Cheeseburger Deluxe", that I remember as being
produced at the Fred Jones Art School of the University of Oklahoma in
the early to mid 1970's.
The film dealt with Cold War Paranoia and Atomic Weapons proliferation
via manipulation of "duck and cover" films, very much in the manner of,
however, preceding "Atomic Cafe" (1982).

The film was shown quite extensively at the University of Oklahoma in
the late 70's and early 80's as proof of the Fred Jones Film Department
output of film work, however repeated queries to the Art School have
turned up nothing in the last few years.

Does anyone have a film like this in their holdings or know who the
filmmaker would be?

Recent discussion of the National Film Registry selections reminds me
that I would like to find a copy of the film and nominate it; maybe
even donate pro-bono services to see it preserved.

Thank you in advance.
