Ricordo Posted February 13, 2021 Share Posted February 13, 2021 On our way to lunch, my wife mentioned the movies "The Day After" and "Threads". She mentioned that "Threads" had left her depressed after watching it. I brought up a movie that I watched in the early/mid 70s, but I couldn't remember its name. That I had watched "The Day After" and found it pretty lame. I've never watched "Threads", didn't know it existed. That the movie I referred was found by the BBC to be "not fit for mass consumption" and never shown on TV. After a search, she found its title was "The War Game", produced in 1965 and released in a limited theatrical presentation in 1966. Won the Oscar for Best Documentary Performance (or sumpthin' like that) and finally released on BBC TV in 1985. It seems critics favor it as the best nuclear-attack film ever made and that's what I remember from it. It's actually a docu-drama. So here it is, just in time for Valentine's Day. https://archive.org/details/TheWarGame_201405 I Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
