Trivia

During the live broadcast a tape of the last dress rehearsal was available for broadcast just in case some technical problem interrupted the live performance so that there would be no interruption of the broadcast. See more »

Goofs

General Bogan is wearing the Air Force Good Conduct ribbon. It is clearly visible, 4th row from the top, center ribbon. Even if this impossibility was correct, it would not be in the order shown and in a row just beneath the high decoration of the silver star. It is of a much lower order of distinction and would belong in the bottom row of ribbons. This Air Force version ribbon was instituted in 1963 to replace the old red/white Army ribbon. It would have been impossible for him to have earned it as an enlisted airman since this film takes place about the same time it was instituted, therefore its display is improper. See more »

Quotes

Col. Jack Grady, Command Pilot Group 6: There's only one decision left to make, and then our job is done. We decide from what height to drop the bombs. We've already taken on enough radiation from the blast, at best we'd last a couple of days.

Live action is NOT a thing of the past anymore.
16 April 2000 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I never thought I'd get into a live action drama like this, but I thought it was INCREDIBLE. The actors were superb and the storyline was gorgeously done. I was surprised that they were making live episodes of television shows, I didn't think anyone would be able to pull off a live 2-hour movie, but they did, and if it isn't nominated for several emmys, it will be a major crime.

Kudos to the whole cast and crew for the most amazing movie in a VERY long time.
