The Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962 was a dangerous confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War and was the moment when the two superpowers came closest to nuclear conflict. I remember "duck and cover drills" when I was in school, crawling under my desk. I was too young to actually know what was going on. But I remember what a big deal this TV movie was when it came out. This movie is not only educational but a dam good drama. One of the best docudramas ever made. ★★★
