THE DOMINO PRINCIPLE
Directed by STANLEY KRAMER
Screenplay by ADAM KENNEDY

Now the book has fallen into the heavy hands of Director Stanley Kramer, and, despite Kennedy's presence at the screenwriter's keyboard, everything that made the book good, popular fiction has somehow been lost.
The main lines of the plot have been retained, but they constitute what has become a standard trip...
