Kevin Costner plays a trusted aid of President Kennedy in a riveting account of the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. Caught it on HBO the other night and was was blown away. I was a young teenager at the time and didn’t realize the world was really that close to all-out nuclear war. Gen. Curtis LeMay, later George Wallace’s pick for vice president, and the other high-ranking military officers were a scary group as depicted in this movie. And the scariest part is that basically they were right. It’s no wonder that wise heads installed a hotline between Washington and Moscow soon after this incident. Really good movie.
