  • Favorite 'Cold War-era' movies?

    Mine are:

    Fail Safe with Henry Fonda

    The Bedford Incident with Sidney Portier

    And there was one with Burt Lancaster...5 Days in May(???), that HBO did a remake of a few years ago(THEY titled in The Enemy Within and called it an HBO Original...).

    Shooter,

    If HBO produces the film for HBO, they always call it an "HBO original."

    "Hunt for Red October."

      "No Way Out" with Gene Hackman and Kevin Costner (this was back when Costner did good films). Hands down, without a doubt the BEST ending of any movie I've ever seen. It ranks in my top 5 movies.
      Caution and worry never accomplished anything.

        Shooter took the good ones already. The Bedford Incident was really good. I thought I was the only one that actually has seen that one.

        I think it was "Seven Days in May."

        Torn Curtain

        From Russia with Love

        Funeral in Berlin

        The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

        Dr Strangelove (spoof of Fail Safe)

        Ice Station Zebra

          I didn't see the Fail Safe version with Fonda, but I saw the live enactment with George Clooney

                I always liked Rocky and Bullwinkle; biggest satire on the Cold War there ever was!

                  I have to agree with you DMS because I have all their videos. Plus, Natasha has such a sultry voice. LOL.

                    I was impressed with Thirteen Days (although NOT with Kevin Cosner's ATTEMPTED accent).

                    The tension was unbelievable (and considering we knew what really happened anyway) I was STILL on the edge of my seat.

                    I also liked By Dawn's Early Light with Powers Booth and James Earl Jones.

                    (BTW-Did you guys know that James Earl Jones originally took acting lessons to help with his stuttering problem???? Can't imagine that!)
                    People have more fun than anybody.

                        What was the movie that had Roy Schieder as a rogue US Army Colonel, sneaking across the E. German border to 'pick a fight' with the Russians? It was GOOD!

                              Any pre 1990's Bond film.

                              Hunt for the Red October and the ipcress file, all good.
