This is a pretty good end-of-the-world, what-if, catastrophe film from the Pre-Code era that you most likely probably never heard of. I hadn't of it. Without the special effects, say, of a 2012, or of an Armageddon, or anything modern anymore, this rocks better than you might think and also takes into consideration, after the model filled destruction of civilization, the possible social ramifications of a society short on one of the two sexes. It's interesting if only to realize that they were thinking of end times back then just as we do now.
But for the sprawling and ambitious tidal wave sequence, this is melodrama at its best... or should I say worst?
