Recommended for: everyone
Read in January, 1964

After seeing this darkly funny movie at Park Ridge's Pickwick Theatre, I went off to the bookstore near the Post Office to purchase the novelization, not knowing that the film had been based on a previous novel by the same primary author, George, entitled Red Alert. The book did not disappoint as it followed the screenplay very closely.

Both Seven Days in May and Failsafe, two other movies about the threat of global war, were released at about the same time, not long after the Kennedy assassination. I also saw them and also bought the books associated with them. Such were the times. Such were some of the influences working on the minds of thirteen-year olds.
