I agree with several of your criticisms. My overall impression of Day One was that the point of view held by the authors and the producers created considerable distortion as to the nature of the effort to build an atomic bomb. A non-profit organization, Accuracy in Media, also asked for my comments about the accuracy of the production, and I am enclosing a copy of my comments for your interest.” Included is a seven-page typed commentary, entitled “Comments on the Historical Presentation in the television production ‘Day One’ based on Peter Wyden’s book, Day One: Before Hiroshima and After,” signed at the top of the first page in black ink, “Edward Teller.” Includes an unsigned Hoover Institution business card belonging to Edward Teller. In overall fine condition.
