Crack in the World Dana Andrews, pilot of many research projects and spacecraft is a familiar figure as the leader of the plan to utilize geothermal energy by tapping into the magna at the earth's core. Two familiar themes: search for limitless energy and the effects of hydrogen and nuclear bomb testing leading to the destruction of the planet, serious concerns for many in the 60's (think, Godzilla w/ Raymond Burr). This movie is a cross betweeen and "A" and a "B" scifi flick, but with Dana Andrews rather than a "star" performer it has to fall into the "B" classification. The colour is vivid and the special effects are above-average for the '60's. The acting is hokey and the story predictable, but the action carries the film forward and keeps the viewers attention. This DVD is reccommended for 50's and 60's scifi affectionados.

Humanity destroys the world w/ reckless atom bomb testing theme is dropped in the '70's in favour of an uncontollable element, a meteor, destroying the world, for example "Meteor" w/ Sean Connery, Natilie Wood, Karl Malden and a cameo of Henry Fonda. Meteor falls into the A catagory and starts a new theme. If you like Crack in the World, you'll like Meteor.
DVD: Paramount Pics, 1964 rlease. 96 min. No extras.

"Thank God it's only a motion picture," the caption on the box reads. Dana Andrews stars as Doctor Steven Sorrenson, head of Project Inner Space, an initiative to bring magma to the surface under control. When the lowest layer of the Earth's crust frustrates his efforts to penetrate it, Dr. Sorrenson seeks permission to use an atomic device, convinced the heat of the blast will easily burn its way through to the mantle. His project's geologist and young wife's ex-flame, Doctor Ted Rampian (Kieron Moore from "The Day of the Trifids") develops the 'Rampian theory,' the belief that the crust has been so weakened by years of underground atomic testing, that this bomb might open a crack in the Earth's crust. Finding out he's terminally ill, Dr. Sorrenson overrules his geologist and successfully fires the warhead. But soon after both scientists investigate strange seismic phenomena, and it becomes apparent that the Rampian theory no longer is a theory: a nearby fault has opened up and is threatening to circumnavigate the globe. Released in 1965, the movie enjoys some rather impressive special effects, and I like the way the music emphasizes the action. I personally think very highly of this film, and it's my belief that it must have become the inspiration for the Doctor Who episode "Inferno."

In an attempt to harness the world's magma core for heat and elements by a top scientist, Dr. Stephen Sorenson (Dana Andrews), a sort of surprise creates a crack in the world. Meantime Dr. Maggie Sorenson (Janette Scott) the scientist's wife is torn between two powerful men the scientist and his number two, Dr. Ted Rampion (Kieron Moore) also divided by the crack.

Can they join forces and save the world? They better get cracking.

This film has all the elements of 1965 science fiction. Aside from Dana Andrews you will had fun trying to remember where you have seen the actors before.

As with most sci-fi if the time let this be a warning against being impetuous.
