When Worlds Collide (1951)

US 83m, Colour
Director: Rudolph Maté; Cast: Richard Derr, Barbara Rush, Peter Hansen, John Hoyt

when_worlds_collideWhen Worlds Collide is a science fiction doomsday film based on the Wylie and Balmer 1933 novel of the same name about the impending destruction of the earth and the efforts of a small group of scientists hoping to build a rocket that will safely transport them to another planet. With biblical references, the rocket is portrayed as a future Noah’s ark. Unfortunately, the film’s surprisingly good special effects are nearly wasted by the ridiculous “science”, and the comparatively poor acting (Klaus Ming February 2015).
