TITLE: THE DAY THE WORLD ENDED
DAY THE WORLD ENDED
DIRECTOR: Roger Corman
Roger Corman's first of three end-of-the-world films (see also TEENAGE CAVEMAN and THE LAST WOMAN ON EARTH) features an unlikely band of atomic war survivors combating monsters and each other. Mike 'Touch' Connors steals the movie as a gangster trying to work all the angles of the post-apocalyptic landscape. The movie's pressbook asserts that radioactive mutations of the sort depicted in the film "could happen."
THE DAY THE WORLD ENDED
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
This infamous red scare film was put together from television newsreel footage of the May 1960 House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) hearings in San Francisco, its attendant student protests, and the riotous police action (fire hoses used on City Hall protesters) that followed.
