I'd like some new material to devour, and I have an interest in this era for some reason, particularly the spy stuff (!) but also the space race, and other associated topics. I don't mind if it's fact or fiction really, it's not an academic pursuit. I'd quite like some books, so I can read them on the train, but I like movies too.

What have I read/seen so far ...

Pretty much all of the Tom Clancy books/movies (the Jack Ryan ones anyway)
More than a few Alistair MacLean books
Dr Strangelove
Thirteen Days
Goodnight And Good Luck (absolutely love this film)
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
The Right Stuff

and next on my watch list is:

The Good Shepherd
The Spy Who Came In From The Cold
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
Phys.Org News Partner Science news on
Scientists develop 'electronic nose' for rapid detection of C. diff infection
Why plants in the office make us more productive
Tesla Motors dealing as states play factory poker

I think it's probably accurate to characterize all the original James Bond novels by Ian Flemming as "Cold War Literature".

Fail Safe.

They made a 2000 TV movie starring Harvey Keitel (which I've seen). Prior to this, there was a 1964 big screen movie starring Henry Fonda (which I've not seen).
