A Case of the Cold War: Bridge of Spies was a fascinating extra on the movie's DVD
26 May 2016 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This was an extra on the DVD for Bridge of Spies. In it, Steven Spielberg tells of his father, Arnold, being at the then-Soviet Union and encountering some of the people there who had intense emotions concerning U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers, who was on a mission that compromised Russia. Interesting insights from the son of the late Powers as well as another U.S. citizen also profiled in the movie-Frederic Pryor who was a student in Germany during the Cold War. The cast and crew state their own takes on the events that was depicted in the movie with some of the most fascinating coming from one of the writers-Matt Charman. So on that note, A Case of the Cold War: Bridge of Spies is worth a look as an extra on the movie's DVD.
