Nuclear Tipping Point (2010)

You should really watch this. Colin Powell explains how he didn’t want to shoot an “Atomic Annie” at the Soviets. Nuclear Tipping Point is a 2010 documentary produced by the Nuclear Threat Initiative. It features interviews Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Sam Nunn, and William Perry. Did you know a good chunk of the power you’re using right now comes from the decommissioned nuclear submarines of the former USSR along with the Ukraine’s ICBM stockpile from the cold war? These are good guys trying to do a good thing. But there is a quandry. Who will own the last hydrogen bomb?

Angel and the Badman (1946)

This is one of my favorite John Wayne Movies. Quirt Evans gets introduced to Quakers, who take him in after he gets shot over a land deal. He likes the Quakers, especially the farmers daughter played by Gail Russell.

Barney Miller (1975-82)

Captain Barney Miller (Hal Linden) tries to remain sane while leading the 12th Precinct’s detectives: crochety, nearing-retirement Jewish-American Philip K. Fish (Abe Vigoda); naive but goodhearted Polish-American Det. Stanley “Wojo” Wojciehowicz (Max Gail); ambitious, arrogant African-American Det. Ronald “Ron” Nathan Harris (Ron Glass); philosophical, wisecracking Japanese-American Nick Yemana (Jack Soo); and dauntless Puerto Rican Chano Amanguale (Gregory Sierra).
