The Day After
The countdown has begun! Against the real-life backdrop of the US deployment of WMDs in Europe during the escalating cold war,this dramatically involving and agonizingly graphic film about nuclear holocaust detonated a direct hit into the heartland of America. Starring Jason Robards, JoBeth Williams, Steve Guttenberg, John Cullum and John Lithgow, this controversial, potent drama remains one of the most talked-about programs in television history. When cold-war tensions reach the ultimate boiling point, the inhabitants of a small town in Kansas learn — along with the rest of America — that they have less than 30 minutes before 300 Soviet warheads begin to appear overhead! Can anyone survive this ultimate nightmare…or the nuclear winter that is sure to follow?
