In November of this year the German people will celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago. The "Cold War" was officially dead and the Soviet Union collapsed a scant two years later. The period began shortly after WWII when multimillionaire financier and adviser to president to Harry S. Truman, Bernard Baruch coined the term “Cold War”, to describe the increasingly chilly relations between two of World War Twos allies, the United States and the Soviet Union. Shortly after Baruch coined the phrase, Hollywood began cranking out movies on this theme. TV even got in on it too. This Poll has the very best of those titles.

Which one is your favorite?

Once again, I'm tempted to nominate the majority but I stay with 'The Ipcress File' based on Len Deighton's book

'Great idea, Ed! The list, too, is quite good. Oh, I love a few of these movies. 

I would vote for four, or maybe even five, if I could. :)

May I suggest just a few polishing edits? ('below in bold)

Hey, thanks, Ed. Pet Rubee for me. My Ruby-cat says hello, as well. She likes sitting here with me when I'm on my laptop.
