Film & Video


The B-58 has appeared in a few Hollywood feature films, the most notable being the 1964 film Fail-Safe, starring Walter Matthau and Henry Fonda. This big budget movie tells the story of American planes sent to deliver a nuclear attack on Moscow; but it's a mistake due to an electrical malfunction and now the planes cannot be recalled.

Note that while the B-58 Hustler is shown in many external shots, the interior scenes of the bomber appears to be the cockpit of a B-52.
