Drama, Science Fiction and Fantasy
Sixties audiences may have been blissfully unaware of the dangers of global warming, but that's what this imaginative 1961 sci-fi yarn is effectively about. As a result of nuclear testing the Earth has wound up spinning towards the sun, which causes a catastrophic shift in weather conditions and signals certain doom for mankind. Despite being in black and white, the film still feels very modern and just as believable as recent Hollywood global disaster epics.
