BY DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT
DIRECTOR: Jack Sholder
YEAR: 1990

According to military experts, an accurate telling of how nuclear war might play out. Based on William Prochnau's best selling page turner Trinity's Child, this made-for-HBO thriller depicts the nuclear chain of command, from the President to a B-52 bomber crew, engaging in nuclear war, and then trying to turn it off. Darren McGavin is very scary as a Secretary of the Interior turned Commander in Chief who can't wait to win a thermonuclear war.
