* XRaySparks: Used to depict the fortunate victims who were close enough to get vaporized by the nukes. That said, technology not available to 1983 audiences allows the viewer to slow down the section and realize that most of the images used to show the vaporization don't make much sense. Seconds earlier, Kansas City was descending into panic as air raid sirens blare and terrified citizens run haphazardly through the streets. Yet the vaporization scenes show people enjoying a day at the park, sitting in bars and coffee shops, quietly reading books in easy chairs, playing in the school band, etc. (Many are stills recycled from the beginning of the movie - three days ago in movie time.) The only victim of vaporization with any awareness of the events under way is Marilyn Oakes, the first victim. SFDebris claimed it could be used to metaphorically show that in that instant, that was the end of regular human life; once the nukes detonated, nothing would be the same such as those mentioned shots.

The aftermath of the initial showing of the film had a profound effect on politics. RonaldReagan, who viewed the film when it came out, was greatly disturbed and claimed the movie left him "deeply depressed" for a while. Keep in mind, before this movie aired, Soviet and U.S. relations were strained to a level not seen since the CubanMissileCrisis. [[UsefulNotes/{{NATO}} NATO's]] infamous ABLE ARCHER exercise in Western Europe that took place in early 1983 was another close call, because the Soviet's thought the exercise was an escalation of forces in Europe and that NATO was ready to go to nuclear war with the Warsaw Pact. After attending a meeting with the Pentagon about nuclear weapons shortly after the movie was released, Reagan became further repulsed by the idea of nuclear weapons and he wanted the solve the Cold War peacefully with the Soviets from that point on. In 1987, not only was the film shown on Soviet television for the first time, but the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was signed by the United States and USSR. The treaty banned nuclear and conventional ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with intermediate ranges. In his memoir, Reagan directly mentioned a quote from the movie in relation about the signing.
