Sputnik Mania

Trailer (Flash Video) for Sputnik Mania - A Film by David Hoffman. "...Fifty years ago, at the height of the Cold War, the USSR launched Sputnik, the first satellite to orbit the earth, bringing America to its knees in awe - then fear. Initially thrilling as a marvel of science, Sputnik was soon viewed by America a weapon of mass destruction. Narrated by Liev Schreiber with expert use of archival footage, SPUTNIK MANIA explores the fast-moving series of events that brought the world's super-powers to the brink of nuclear war, and includes the story of two ex-generals whose private agreement prevented WW III."
