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
INFORMATION PROGRAM WITHIN PUBLIC SHELTERS
After the U.S. government experienced a PR backlash of sorts with its promotion of family fallout shelters (the private shelters sparked a lively moral debate about whether it was OK to shoot your neighbor if he tried to force his way into your end-of-the-world abode), public shelters became the official survival vehicle for the nation.
