Cold War Obsession: The Bedford Incident

The 1965 film “The Bedford Incident” is a fine thriller with a great cast headed by Richard Widmark (a favorite actor of mine) who also produced the film, and obviously thought it would make a good vehicle for him, and he was right, he is perfect as the intense and obsessed Captain of the destroyer hunting a Soviet submarine. The film also stars Sidney Poitier, Martin Balsam, James MacArthur and Wally Cox. It is well directed in black and white (I don’t think the film would work as well in color) by James B. Harris the one time producing partner of Stanley Kubrick.
