THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE

DIRECTOR: Val Guest
YEAR: 1961

London Daily News writers Leo McKern and Edward Judd uncover the reason the Earth has been knocked out of orbit and is hurtling towards the Sun: the US and USSR both performed nuclear tests simultaneously. As more bombs are exploded in an effort to return Earth to its normal orbit, two headlines are prepared by the newspaper: World Saved and World Doomed.
