About Fail Safe

NR TV-14 | 112 min | Drama, Suspense, War | 1964
When a military computer error deploys a squadron of SAC bombers to destroy Moscow, the American President (Henry Fonda) tries to call them back. But their sophisticated fail-safe system prevents him from aborting the attack, so he must convince the Soviets not to retaliate.
