The Day The Earth Caught Fire (1961) - Janet Munro DVD
The Day The Earth Caught Fire (1961)
When the United States and the Soviet Union simultaneously set off nuclear explosions, The London Daily Express begins to report on bizarre weather changes around the world. But when the reporters dig deeper, they discover that the blasts have knocked Earth off its axis and sent it hurtling towards the sun. Now, as scorching heat and devastating floods plague the planet, cities explode in chaos and mankind is left with one last hope: A final massive detonation that will either re-balance the Earth's orbit or destroy the world forever.
Produced, directed and co-written by Val Guest (The Quatermass Xperiment), this British classic is legendary for its brilliant dialogue, chilling realism and one of the most provocative endings in sci-fi history. The Day The Earth Caught Fire has now been completely remastered from the original vault materials, including the restoration of its stunning tinted sequences not seen since the movie's original theatrical release 40 years ago.
