A made-for-television play, Missiles of October gave American audiences its first dramatization of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962 during the Cold War. It focused on the Kennedy administration's discussions, disagreements, and final consensus to blockade Cuba, which housed the beginning of a Soviet missile installation system. The script is based on Robert Kennedy's posthumously published 1969 book Thirteen Days: A Memoir of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
