Re: Original Movie Poster

Apparently this was being made at the same time as Dr. Strangelove, came out just before it - and the makers of Dr. Strangelove sabotaged its success by suing them, claiming that they had stolen the plot from the novel they had purchased the rights to. As a result, this film was practically buried on release.

Crafty buggers. Mind you, a poster like that can't have helped much.

Re: Original Movie Poster

I loved this film, very much played with a straight bat unlike Dr Strangelove and its play on black humour, which I sometimes felt made the film uneven.

Out of the two I preferred Fail Safe because it was drama of the most shockingly possible kind. I also loved the acting from Fonda and Matthau as well.

But yeah, the film poster looks amateur: as if the artist had no real idea how to interpret the theme of the movie pictorially and ended up with something this bad
