In 1964 I was in the tenth grade when I saw this impending doom of a story. It left an impression because of the intense performances. Walter Matthau's Strangelove/Chaney character nearly stole the show but Fonda's steady and forceful POTUS kept it grounded. I was surprised by how well it went for such an ancient film that can be contemporary whenever it is shown.
Funny, at the end there was a message from the Air Force assuring us this scenario can never happen. Sixty years later we are not convinced.
It's an excellent film. "Seven Days in May" came out the same year. Another excellent film. Burt Lancaster knew how to project menace.
Loved the movie as much as the book. Besides Fonda, Hagman also delivered as his interpreter
"E Burres Stigano?"
