This snippet from a 22-minute video entitled "Community Shelter Planning" stars two-time Academy Award winner Gene Hackman as Civil Defense Regional Officer Donald Ross. The video was created in 1966 by the Office of Civil Defense, a precursor to FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. We'd take Gene over Brownie any day! (For more info on the "Golden Age of Homeland Security," and Mr. Hackman's role in its propaganda, go here.)
