   StormCnter  Just as I began to post this one, I seemed to remember someone else (Mei? ) did it recently. If so, I apologize. If not, forget I mentioned it.

Jonathan Mostow’s highly underrated suspense film came and went with a whimper in 1997, yet this is little B-movie gem has wound up having a shelf life (file-life? ) far beyond its initial reception. Jeff and Amy, a once yuppie couple are hoping to find a new life in California, but when their Jeep Cherokee breaks down, they run into the sinister friendliness of a man offering to help.

   MeiDei  1964 movie
When a military computer error deploys a squadron of SAC bombers to destroy Moscow, the American President tries to call them back. But their sophisticated system prevents him from aborting the attack, so he must convince the Soviets not to retaliate. In desperation, the President offers to sacrifice an American city if his pilots succeed in their deadly mission over Moscow.

   StormCnter  (1895-1963 ) H was an American film actor. His mother was a stage actress, so he worked in theatres in his early days, between schooling, doing "walk-ons". This led to acting in college and doing amateur productions. Alla Nazimova, a friend of the family, convinced him to try moving pictures. He soon became one of Hollywood's highest paid performers. He was nominated for the first Academy Award in the Best Actor category in 1928.
