I recently saw most of a movie called "THE KREMLIN LETTER". It was made in 1970 and must be one of the most realisitic portrayals of espionage ever made. From what I saw---BRUTAL, NO BULLSHIT SPY STUFF. I found a couple of links to it: [url]http://history.acusd.edu/gen/filmnotes/kremlinletter.html[/url] and: [url]http://us.imdb.com/CommentsShow?65950[/url] Unfortunately, it is not yet available in the video stores! What is your favorite Spy Movie?

"Failsafe" The scenes with Henry Fonda & Larry Hagman in the bunker were awesome. Still riveting after all these years.

Dr. Strangelove and The Manchurian Candidate[+]:D] Red Dawn just made me just go out there and buy alot of firearms[(:)]

Hands down " The hunt for red october " despite baldwin the movie rocks. Red dawn was fun , but not in the same league.

I still enjoy "Ice Station Zebra". And I'm holding hands with Jennifer about "Fail Safe". Also one of my favorites is "The Bedford Incident".

The Bedford Incident. First onscreen Tactical Nuke.

Dr. Strangelove. Peter Seller's best role(s). BTW, he actually was in the RAF during WWII. I think he flew fighters.

Red Dawn

What about "The Day After"?!?!? I didn't see it myself, but I know it shook up a lot of people. My favorite cold war movies are the triple S's: "Survivors," "Stripes," and "Spies Like Us." He he. "Hunt for Red October" was quite good despite Baldwin.

Really don't have a favorite, but since it hasn't been mentioned yet....The Spy Who Came In From The Cold.

Good movie, and it made you realize how lucky we were (are?) not to have a nuclear war with the former USSR. I like Red Dawn, too [sniper]

The Abyss was good even though it was kinda touchy feely at the end. The FX were awesome and it was a good plot. Number 2 would be Spies Like Us. HILARIOUS!!!

How about "From Russia With Love"
Link Posted: 6/30/2001 10:30:02 PM EDT
Definitely Dr. Strangelove. One of my all-time favorite movies, period.
Link Posted: 6/30/2001 10:34:41 PM EDT
This one is easy, my Favorite is: "How I learned to stop worring and love the Bomb" sgtar15
Link Posted: 6/30/2001 10:43:09 PM EDT
How about "Threads" -- a shockingly realistic (technical consultation by nuclear scientists) nuclear war apocalyptical movie. Scared the shit out of me -- we were given a copy during a NBC training course by [url]www.ASOD.org[/url] MUCH more graphic than "The Day After".

Has to be Dr Strangelove, especially Slim Pickins riding the nuke to the target. Fail Safe does have a little special significance to me. The day in November of '78, when I had come home from Iceland, with orders for NORAD, I was watching Fail Safe at the same time I was reading in the paper about the (MAJOR) false alert they had earlier that morning. A month later, when I arrived, found out my roommate was one of the computer operators that day. Glad nobody mentioned War Games. That movie was a total joke. [whacko]

And another vote for DR. STRANGE LOVE, second a serious movie THE BEAST(about a Soviet tank crew in Afghan war)

I like "By dawns early light" followed by "Red Dawn". Every 2nd ammendment lover should love "Red Dawn". You can tell it was written by someone who is very pro 2nd ammendment becuase they make a point a point in movie where one of the Cuban Officer (I think he is Cuban). Tells one of his men to go to the sporting goods store and get the copies of the 4473 form so they can round up the gun owners. Six

"Ice Station Zebra". I'll second that vote. "Red Dawn" Another winner.

"Dr. Strangelove" is my favorite, but I'm also a big fan of "By Dawn's Early Light".

How about World War III, where the Alaska National Guard fought the Russians who had invaded Alaska to destroy the Oil Pipeline. Not really a movie but a TV miniseries but still one of the best. Dr. Strangelove, Failsafe, and Red Dawn are also at the very top of my list of Cold War movies. Sniper for Justice VINCE AUT MORIRE (Conquer or Die)

Do you think the actors in Red Dawn knew the message they were sending out. Or do you think they were just so surprised that they were in a movie. Most of those kids it was the first major movies they were in. Six

Another vote for Dr. Strangelove (Yes, mien fuhrer,,,I mean Mr. President!). I'll also vote on Red Dawn as a second. There are a few memorable scenes in it. Like someone already pointed out with the officer telling the soldier to go get the 4473's. Also the seen with the soldier taking the pistol out of the dead guys hand, under the bumper sticker "You can have my gun after you pry it from my cold dead fingers." Another one I liked, was 'Telefon' with Charles Bronson. It was about Russian trained agents that went on a predetermined suicide attack when they received a specific message (over the phone) that triggered a subconscious response.

If any of you can find it, try [size=5]Hopscotch[/size=5]. It is an old Walter Matheau movie about a CIA field agent who doesn't want to be moved to a desk so he walks out and starts writing his memoirs. Everybody is out to kill him. Ice
