Fridge / The Andromeda Strain

1971 Movie

Fridge Brilliance
  • The confusion Hall has over stopping the nuke instead of "firing the thing" is a legitimate worry on his part, because he still has final say on allowing it to go off if the need arises.
  • A Freeze-Frame Bonus back in The '80s and The '90s but clear as day on newer LCD TV's: the polycron gaskets in the Wildfire lab fall apart when Hall has to get into the area where the bomb is.
