TITLE: THE H MAN
DIRECTOR: Inoshiro Honda
Japanese sci-fi film remotely inspired by actual events (the Lucky Dragon incident in which a Japanese fishing boat was caught in deadly fallout from an American H-bomb test in the South Pacific) concerns a fallout irradiated fisherman who has turned into radioactive slime. The H-Man must now dissolve others to survive and wreaks havoc on Tokyo. Released the same year as the all-American THE BLOB.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
Some may have thought that it was wonderfully civic minded of the Burroughs Corporation to sponsor a film about vital records storage as a component of civil defense, but when 'Bombproof' suddenly turns into an infomercial for the microfilm industry, the company's true motive becomes quite clear.
