1962 ... illustration for 'FAILSAFE'

... Robert McCall illustration for a Post magazine version of the book "Failsafe'. The amazing and infinitely somber movie of the same name has haunted me ever since I first saw it on TV.
... here is the entire movie on Youtube- even better get if from Netflix.

I got a glimpse of the movie and will go back after work to watch it. I was thinking of the Henry Fonda one, but this appears to be a different Failsafe. How intriguing. Now, I must check it out. I'd love to hear what your top factorite Cold War themed movies are.

I've seen both, and I found that the George Clooney version is more disturbing. I like Walter Matthau's Groteschele more than Hank Azaria's. Azaria's version seemed shrill, where Matthau's was more cold and clinical.
