TITLE: BY DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT
BY DAWN'S EARLY LIGHTDIRECTOR: Jack Sholder
According to military experts, an accurate telling of how nuclear war might play out. Based on William Prochnau's best selling page turner Trinity's Child, this made-for-HBO thriller depicts the nuclear chain of command, from the President to a B-52 bomber crew, engaging in nuclear war, and then trying to turn it off. Darren McGavin is very scary as a Secretary of the Interior turned Commander in Chief who can't wait to win a thermonuclear war.

COMMUNITY SHELTER PLANNING
While many film scholars may point to Gene Hackman's break-out role in 1967's BONNIE AND CLYDE as the cinematic vehicle that molded him into the kind of thespian that INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO host James Lipton salivates over, CONELRAD has discovered another role that no doubt made him the performer he is today: "Regional Field Officer" in 1966's COMMUNITY SHELTER PLANNING, a government civil defense film. Yes, the future Popeye Doyle once appeared in an atomic safety film.
