    This is a film I saw around 1992. It is a black and white film; I also know it was foreign, with subtitles; in the film a group of men have to transport nuclear bombs on trucks, but they have to drive very carefully and far apart. One of the bombs goes off on one of the trucks.

    Any ideas. Thanks

    It sounds like The Wages of Fear .... but they were carrying nitro glycerine and not bombs.

    I also suggest Wages of Fear, but I have a feeling there was a spaghetti-type remake of it where the cargo was something nuclear. But I would have thought that would have been in colour

    Yes, it could be nitro glycerine that was carried.

    Another point I recall is, when the bomb goes off, a huge 'mushroom' cloud appears, and the truck far behind feels the gust of wind produced by the bomb.

    It was black and white

    Thanks

    "Sorcerer" (1977) with Roy Scheider was a re-make of Wages of Fear. They were also hauling nitro-glycerine and not nuclear bombs.



    There there was a Goon Show episode titled "The Fear of Wages" ... but somehow I don't think that's the one!
