Bombs Away

Three year old Monique Corzilius counts to ten, pulling petals off of a daisy. A voice from mission control then counts down as the camera zooms into Monique’s dark pupil. An atomic blast and ensuing mushroom cloud consumes the TV screen as President Lyndon Johnson’s voice proclaim’s “We must either love each other, or we must die.” This political ad, “Peace Little Girl,” aired only once or twice during the 1964 presidential campaign between Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater, but ushered in a new era of the television attack ad.

James’ bestselling whodunit.
