The Bedford Incident

Harris, Stanley Kubrick's former producer, here came up with his own Dr Strangelove variant, muting the black humour but just as incisively diagnosing nuclear insanity, as Widmark's super-patriot warship captain hunts a Soviet sub in Arctic waters, justifying his brinkmanship to Poitier's junketing journalist (along to do a story) and a sorely tried crew. (From the novel by Mark Rascovich.
