Yep... I remember seeing that in the early 60's, scary and depressing as H3LL because back then you knew it could really happen (mutual annihilation) !! I also have that one in my movie collection,, a classic gem ! Need to pull it out and watch again.
Loc: Alexandria, VA
Absolutely one of my favorites! The obvious double feature would be with Dr. Strangelove -- it's interesting the two were released around the same time and I believe there were some legal fisticuffs involved concerning the similar story lines ...
... But the *real* second feature in my mind is Seven Days in May, which is another contemporary film with a top notch cast, great acting and directing, and doesn't leave you at all feeling happy-go-lucky at the end ...
Watching both will lead you to a good stiff drink and much to think about ...
I wish some of the most adamant Tea Partiers would get a minor E. coli infection, enough to see how important it is to be vigilant against "the bad bugs".
I view CDC's job like the military... the military guards against invasion and terrorist attacks by humans... CDC protects against those caused by pathogenic microbes. To be honest many of the bugs are more secretive and clever than human terrorists.... esp the viruses. Not only can some kill, but they cause lots of human misery and can cause huge economic damage to boot.
About 5-6 years ago, they estimated a moderate flu outbreak would cost us $20 Billion, in deaths, health care costs, and lost productivity - probably lots more today and that was only a moderate one. That's why CDC pushes the vaccine every year. One even 1/3 of the 1918 epidemic could be devastating.
