DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE (1961). Slow going at first, but then becomes quite compelling. The US/USSR have exploded Nuclear Bombs and it has shifted the Earth's axis and moving it towards the Sun. Only chance to right the wrong is explode a bigger bomb, hoping to save the Earth by going so.
Quite talky, but this really is quite good with a sense of dread permeating. Awesome matte work and good cast with Edward Judd (ISLAND OF TERROR), Janet Munro (SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON, THE CRAWLING EYE), Leo McKern (LADYHAWKE) and a very young Michael Caine as a Policeman. ***1/2
