Dr. Strangelove will be on TCM at 8:00 ET this evening.
For other DU'ers who will be staying in this evening. It's one of my favorites and so apropos to the current situation.

1. The 2000 live CBS remake of Fail Safe is on the History Channel right now
It's the best television I've seen in a long time. HUGE cast, really well done and true to the spirit of the original.

8. Too bad that they're programming it against "Strangelove."
Otherwise, I'd love to see it. I've only seen the earlier version. Do you know if they will be replaying it soon?

9. Actually, it just ended at the top of the hour
I don't see any replays listed yet.

If you get the chance, definitely watch it. They shot it live on TV in 2000 in black and white. The whole thing looks like something on TV Playhouse in the '60's -- which ends up being a really cool effect. Too many good actors in it to list, too.
