%% ATTENTION: Do not add claims that this work is "Lighter and Softer" in relation to Threads. That trope is ONLY for works that are retooled to become more "family friendly" later in their run, or in remakes. For "Lighter and Softer" to apply here, Threads would have had to be made first, and The Day After later, instead of the other way around.

The aftermath of the initial showing of the film had a profound effect on politics. UsefulNotes/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 83 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.
