TITLE: THE H MAN
DIRECTOR: Inoshiro Honda
Japanese sci-fi film remotely inspired by actual events (the Lucky Dragon incident in which a Japanese fishing boat was caught in deadly fallout from an American H-bomb test in the South Pacific) concerns a fallout irradiated fisherman who has turned into radioactive slime. The H-Man must now dissolve others to survive and wreaks havoc on Tokyo. Released the same year as the all-American THE BLOB.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
OUR CITIES MUST FIGHT
Archer's other civil defense film ('Duck And Cover' being the more well known) is a ponderous examination of the dangers of civilians abandoning an A-bombed city. The story is presented as a dialog between two men, one of whom seems to be perpetually smoking and re-lighting a pipe, sitting in a poorly lit office.
