what are some of the best Cold War themed/era films you know of?

I like Ice Station Zebra, we had to watch it for my Cold War class....this is the only one I remember, though I saw at least 10 films or so from various years (1915-1980, even before the Cold War started). Some films we saw were pro-Russian films, before the Cold War had begun, really interesting propaganda.

Red Dawn, Dr Strangelove,

The Hunt For Red October, what a great movie.

I guess I'm going to have to say the original "Fail Safe." Excellent show.

Strategic Air Command with Brigadier General Jimmy Stewart was pretty good.

Hunt for Red October. By far.

The Bedford Incident

One my favorites.

I liked the depiction of the scientists and the underground agents in Firefox. They weren't a central part of the plot, but the movie did a rather decent job of portraying what life was like for politically disfavored people in the USSR.

All the above plus "Bombers B-52" with Rock Hudson.

Jet Pilot, with John Wayne.

Not really. It was a pretty crappy movie, but I can't help but watch it when it's on.
