DIRECTOR: Gordon Douglas
Atomic testing has caused New Mexico desert ants to grow to monstrous proportions. The beasts head to the sewers of Los Angeles feasting on humans along the way. James Whitmore, James Arness and Joan Weldon devise a way to destroy the invading insects. Look closely for Leonard Nimoy and Atomic character actor William Schallert in small parts in this often imitated sci-fi classic.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
OUR CITIES MUST FIGHT
Archer's other civil defense film ('Duck And Cover' being the more well known) is a ponderous examination of the dangers of civilians abandoning an A-bombed city. The story is presented as a dialog between two men, one of whom seems to be perpetually smoking and re-lighting a pipe, sitting in a poorly lit office.
