On the Beach,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On The Beach [DVD] (DVD)I saw this moviw many years ago on TV. I had really forgotten what an excellent film this still is. You actually forget it is in black and white. It was and is very topical, showing the terrors of
nuclear war, deliberate or accidental. We still need to take care don't we! Gregory Peck is very dignified as the CO of the American submarine, and Anthony Perkins moving as the officer in the
Australian navy. Fred Astaire playing a part against character but v good. I wonder if people would be as calm and dignified today faced with such a calamity.
Watch this and enjoy.
