In this edition I look at two very similar films made about 15 years apart – The Rocketeer and Iron Man. Both are military-assisted productions and after outlining their connections to the DOD and USAF I analyse their storylines to explain what they are saying about technological innovation and development in the real world. I compare sequences from both movies to illustrate how in some ways they are identical, before reflecting on the reality of technological innovation and how it is deployed.
