A mention on Twitter yesterday took me to the trailer of "Command and Control," a documentary on the 1980 explosion in a Titan II missile silo in Damascus. It's a thrilling account of a dramatic time of uncertainty after a nuclear warhead capable of massive destruction was thrown out of the silo.

More on the film here.

The current list of screenings includes film festivals and, in the fall, showings in commercial theaters in large cities. Nothing listed in Arkansas as yet. It will be aired on PBS. Alan Weatherly at AETN says it will have screenings, including at the Ron Robinson Theatre, but details aren't firm yet. He said the AETN airing is most likely to be in January.
