TITLE: THIRTEEN DAYS
DIRECTOR: Roger Donaldson
A big budget docudrama of the Cuban Missile crisis of October 1962 told from the perspective of Kennedy aide Kenny O'Donnell (Kevin Costner). Bruce Greenwood and Stephen Culp as JFK and RFK respectively are quite convincing as they struggle to maintain control over the Joint Chiefs while brokering a back channel deal with the Soviets. A previous treatment of this subject was the 1974 TV movie THE MISSILES OF OCTOBER.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
Some may have thought that it was wonderfully civic minded of the Burroughs Corporation to sponsor a film about vital records storage as a component of civil defense, but when 'Bombproof' suddenly turns into an infomercial for the microfilm industry, the company's true motive becomes quite clear.
