Synopsis
The world is placed on the brink of a nuclear holocaust following a confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union when an insurgent Russian military group lays siege to the Alaskan pipeline in retaliation for an American grain embargo. U.S. President Rock Hudson and Soviet General Secretary Brian Keith find themselves hard-pressed to head off the escalating conflict. Veteran director Boris Sagal was killed in a helicopter accident during the first days of location filming which, rather than being done in Alaska, ultimately took place indoors at Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Studios. The film won an Emmy Award for its makeup and a nomination for sound mixing.
