Editor's Note
CBS took a bold move when they staged FAIL SAFE live on network TV in April 2000. The story follows a pilot (played by George Clooney) who is about to drop nuclear missiles on Russia. Unfortunately Clooney's character is unaware that the entire mission has been ordered by mistake, leaving the American president (played by Richard Dreyfus) faced with some tough decisions. The program was based on a novel by Harvey Wheeler and Eugene Burdick and is directed by the acclaimed Stephen Frears (THE QUEEN). FAIL SAFE was originally adapted for the big screen in 1964 by Sidney Lumet.

Expert Review Fail Safe (2000) - DVD Review

The TV remake of Fail Safe in 2000 used the gimmick of live TV to sell the show. That’s a shame, because the story does not need an extra push; it stands on its own as a powerful piece of Cold War fears and nuclear war. With the time span, under 80 minutes when you take the credits into account, Fail Safe loses something. The story, that of six US bombers accidentally sent to bomb Moscow with nuclear warheads, needs time to develop. This remake moves at a blistering the full review
