"A Cold War classic"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I saw this many years ago and I enjoyed it then. This is such a good storyline that could happen today as it did during the cold war. Some great actors,they play such a great role during this movie.

Description

Fail-Safe

One of the greatest anti-war thrillers ever, FAIL-SAFE stars Henry Fonda, Walter Mathau, Dan O'Herlihy, Larry Hagman and Fritz Weaver (in his film debut) as a group of military men on the verge of World War III.

When a military computer error deploys a squadron of SAC bombers to destroy Moscow, the American President (Fonda) tries to call them back. But their sophisticated fail-safe system prevents him from aborting the attack, so he must convince the Soviets not to retaliate. In desperation, the President offers to sacrifice an American city if his pilots succeed in their deadly mission over Moscow. A four-star techno-thriller that builds tension and suspense with every tick of the nuclear clock.

“It packs a melodramatic wallop that will rattle a lot of chattering teeth.” – New York Times

“Grim, bleak and highly claustrophobic …” – TV Guide
