The CONELRAD 100 of Atomic Films

TITLE: ROCKETSHIP X-M

Astronauts recoil from the mutant savages they encounter on a Mars left devastated by atomic war.


ROCKETSHIP X-M

DIRECTOR: Kurt Neumann
YEAR: 1950

Astronauts enroute to the moon are thrown off course by a meteor shower (and a real life trade paper announcement of a bigger budgeted film titled DESTINATION MOON is already in production) and land on Mars (which is tinted red). They discover the ruins of a sophisticated Martian civilization destroyed by nuclear war. After being attacked by Martian mutants the surviving astronauts blast off and try to return to earth with their revelation of atomic doom.

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.
