I remember when I first saw this and thought this could happen. Now it's a possibility but much less likely. I doubt that anyone really knows how & what the world would be like. The depiction in the movie is scary but factual?

The subject matter is, unfortunately, still timely.

An Olathe Library employee was an extra in this movie. In a scene where a bunch of concerned students are watching a broadcast (before the nuclear poo hits the global fan), she is one of them.

This movie was an event when it first aired in 1983. Something like 100M people watched the broadcast. Unfortunately, it hasn't aged well, with uneven performances, shallow characters, and a rather preachy tone. Even so, it was interesting to see it again 35 years later. If nothing else, it reminds us that nuclear weapons are not just another weapon to use in war.

Cold war for sure - but remember the original film was done in 1983 (about 8 years before the "cold war" ended) (until Putin restarted it).
It was originally a TV movie - and was released on DVD in 2014......
