A precursor to all those radiation fallout monster flicks of the Fifties. A telling cautionary tale worth a watch for far more than the nostalgic factor.
...a rather simplistic antiwar fantasy that pounds its message into the ground for the last twenty minutes or more.
Strikes a false note.
A peculiar mixing of bigot-buster and pacifist sensibilities, rendered largely incoherent on account of Howard Hughes' attempts to transform the piece into a pro-war tract. Strange that such a safe-as-milk picture could have caused many of its talents to
It's certainly the most bizarre anti-war film ever made.
I saw this film on a Netflix Stream and I must say right off the bat that it is the worst video Quality film I have ever watched, though I don't think that is of any fault of Netflix its just what's available. I was going to turn this one off after the first 10 minutes but then I was captured by the story line. A 1948 movie all about tolerance, about someone being different and when they are how bad people can treat them from kids to adults, how fast gossip can spread and what it can affect someone. Many Morals to the story in this one. Just wish video quality was a little better. 3 Stars
Preach, preach, peach, war orphans, boo hoo... Plus the singing was annoying
