If Darrin labelled this late 1983 then we could assume that Lemont watched “The Day After” on ABC back then on a Sunday night. It starred Jason Robards, JoBeth Williams, John Lithgow and Steve Guttenberg among others. I was a freshman at FSU and after the movie which had no commercials after the blast ABC went straight to a live Nightline with Ted Koppel discussing the movie with Carl Sagan, Bill Buckley Jr, Defense Secretary McNamara and Henry Kissinger as well as a couple of other faces I do not remember. I remember that Sagan was the most anti-nuke of the 4 I mentioned above and Buckley thought it was a great deterrent to actual war….. Pretty hardcore and graphic movie, it got us college kids debating nukes that night and through the end of the semester.
