    Background: AS THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE CUBAN CRISIS BEGAN TODAY (SUNDAY 28 OCT.) AMERICAN DEFENCE FORCES CONTINUED TO BE STRENGTHENED IN FLORIDA.

    AT THE SOUTHERNMOST TIP OF FLORIDA, AT KEY WEST, 90 MILES FROM CUBAN ANTI-AIRCRAFT MISSILES WERE INSTALLED ON A BATHING BEACH. JUST A FEW FEET FROM A MAIN BEACHFRONT HIGHWAY, THE MISSILES AS WELL AS ATTENDANT RADAR EQUIPMENT AND MACHINE GUNS WERE WITHIN SIGHT OF TOURISTS AND VACATIONERS IN THE SUNNY FLORIDA CLIMATE.

    THE ANTI-AIRCRAFT MISSILE EMPLACEMENT AT KEY WEST WAS PART OF THE GENERAL BUILDUP OF AMERICAN DEFENSIVE FORCES IN THE FLORIDA AREA, SINCE PRESIDENT KENNEDY ANNOUNCED THE U.S. QUARANTINE AGAINST SHIPMENT OF OFFENSIVE MISSILES TO CUBA.

    FILM SHOWS A LONG PAN OF THE BEACH WHERE ANTI-AIRCRAFT MISSILES ARE IN PLACE, INCLUDING SCENES OF THE HIGHWAY LINED WITH PALM TREES, VACATIONERS STROLLING, 2 SOLDIERS IN A FOXHOLE, RADAR EQUIPMENT, MISSILE LAUNCHER AND ROCKETS, SOLDIERS ON GUARD, RADAR ANTENNAE, SOLDIERS IN FOXHOLE MISSILES.
