Here is picture of a young Larry Hagman from "Fail-Safe (1964).



In the film, Larry Hagman portrays Buck, the translator between the President, portrayed by Henry Fonda, and U.S.S.R. Premier Khrushchev, whose character in the film is heard over the President’s telephone set which is connected to the Washington-Moscow Hotline.

The still shown above is from the following scene:

2. Excellent movie -- too bad Kubrik destroyed it's popularity

He filed a lawsuit to keep it from being released long enough to get Dr Strangelove out 8 months earlier.

After Dr Strangelove, it was probably much harder for 1964 audiences to take the realism of Fail-Safe seriously...

5. No, I found the red 1956 Continental picture on the Internet.

The 1950s automobile body styles are interesting to look back upon.

photos of all American-made cars of the decade organized by year and make.

13. Eugene Burdick and Harvey Wheeler, right?

(And the decision to film the movie in B/W was brilliant.)

7. Great scene.

Hagman gave an excellent performance in a difficult role.

And opposite Henry Fonda...(and Krushchev) !

Well done.

RIP

10. Yes. Mary Martin of "Peter Pan" fame.

As a side note, actor Kiel Martin (from Hill Street Blues) was erroneously said to be the son of Mary Martin.

11. A great movie, and very scary.

Hagman's role is prominent and he handles it well.

Also of interest is Walter Matthau as a nuke hawk professor, and a young Dom Deloise in a bit part as an officer at SAC command. He speaks one line, IIRC.

It is a fairly tense movie.

14. Dreamy: Jeannie pays tribute



Following the news of Larry Hagman's passing — the actor died Friday at 81 years old from complications of cancer — one of Hagman's earliest co-stars, Barbara Eden, has taken to the Web to share memories of her time working with Hagman on the 1960s series I Dream of Jeannie.

"I still cannot completely express the shock and impact from the news that Larry Hagman has passed," Eden wrote on her Facebook page. "I can still remember, that first day on Zuma Beach with him, in the frigid cold. From that day for five more years, Larry was the center of so many fun, wild, shocking… and in retrospect, memorable moments that will remain in my heart forever."

16. I'm gonna bring Bobby down..........

if I have to destroy Ewing Oil to do it." That was my younger brother Jack's favorite JR Ewing quote back in the day. He sounded just like Larry Hagman, too!

RIP Larry Hagman! Your JR Ewing was a character I loved to hate.............
