Fiery Thunderbolts Headed to Earth!
It is Saturday afternoon on a cold winter day and instead of being outside playing I am glued to the television set in the corner of the room watching an old movie from Italy. My big sister Carol walks in and glances at the television for a moment and then declares to me that the actor's lips do not match the words. 'I know," I reply with awe and apprehension, "but it doesn't matter . . . the earth is going to be destroyed in a few minutes!" Some of the best science fiction of the 1950's came from Russia, Germany and Italy, and this Italian atomic thriller is one of the best. It is 1958 and the united world is sending an atomic manned rocket into space to circle the moon and return safely to earth. All goes well until astronaut John McLaren, played by Paul Hubschmid, fires the third rocket ending and something goes terribly wrong. Astronaut McLaren hits the eject button and his top capsule separated from the Atomic rocket and he makes his way back to earth. Now we have a runaway Atomic Bomb loose in space . . . . of course the worst will happen. The rocket collides with an asteroid in a large field of asteroids and there is a nuclear explosion that attracts hundreds of asteroids that will turn and head toward the earth. Hundreds of huge fire-ball meteors will soon pepper the earth in a few hours destroying the earth . . . there will be tidal waves, firestorms and terrible destruction, and the world will soon end. It looks like the end of the world as we know it, and there is nothing that the nations of the world can do but watch as balls of fire descend from the sky burning the planet to a crisp! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
