Fail-Safe

United States | 1964 | Sidney Lumet

Fail-Safe

The sober flip side of Dr. Strangelove is depicted in Sidney Lumet's tense and gripping Cold War thriller. Henry Fonda plays the U.S. President who must deal with the fallout when an American bomber is accidentally ordered to nuke Moscow. This straight-faced suspenser boasts a surprising number of similarities to Kubrick's satire, which was released earlier in the same year by the same studio (Columbia) and trounced Fail-Safe at the box office. With Walter Matthau, Dan O'Herlihy, and Larry Hagman.

112 min. 35mm print from the Sony Pictures studio archive!
