When starving mobs begin rioting in the streets of Moscow, Soviet leaders believe they have no recourse but to seize the Alaskan pipeline to force the United States to end the grain embargo that has brought turmoil to the U.S.S.R. These are the events, so terrifyingly similar to yesterday’s headlines, that bring the superpowers to the brink of World War III.
Starring Brian Keith in an extraordinary performance as the Soviet Secretary-General and Rock Hudson as the beleaguered American President, World War III is suspense and intrigue in epic proportions. From a lonely battleground at an Alaskan valve station to the inner sanctums of world power, World War III brings the worst fears of humankind to the screen with an intensity that is all the more nightmarish because is it so believably real.
