"Fail Safe" is my favorite as it demonstrates the absurdity of the MAD doctrine and what may have to be done to maintain the "tit-for-tat" balance.

Good answer. Henry Fonda was good in that one.

I thought I'd answered this one also but I'm relieved my response was lost because my answer ("One of Our Aircraft is Missing") is British. So for a Hollywood film I'd pick "Twelve O'Clock High" starring Gregory Peck. His powerful performance as a man haunted by thoughts of war stands up very well alongside his Oscar-winning turn as Atticus Finch in "To Kill a Mockingbird."

I answered this question yesterday but it seems my answer got lost in the limbo of cyber space. Anyway, Paths of Glory with Kirk Douglas was my favorite. We watched this film in film English and critiqued it. It was one of Stanley Kubrick's first films and it had amazing directing. Based on a true story, Douglas must defend 3 soldiers that were being court marshalled because of their own commander's incompetance. Douglas faces a "kangaroo" court of military justices and all of his well laid out arguments are ignored.
