The CONELRAD 100 of Atomic Films

TITLE: THE ATOMIC KID




THE ATOMIC KID
DIRECTOR: Leslie H. Martinsen
YEAR: 1954

Mickey Rooney, hardly a "kid" by 1954, wanders into a house filled with mannequins in the middle of the Nevada desert. This being an atomic test site, a bomb goes off. Mickey manages to survive the blast but becomes glowingly radioactive. Comedy ensues. Jerry Lewis explored a similar premise in LIVING IT UP released the same year.

ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
OCCUPYING A PUBLIC SHELTER
Like 'Information Program Within Public Shelters,' this is another over-optimistic introduction to post-Bomb shelter life courtesy the U.S. government. This amusing film has such an incongruous assortment of scenes that it makes underground living seem like some sort of family summer camp sponsored by the military.
