TITLE: SPLIT SECOND
DIRECTOR: Dick Powell YEAR: 1953
Two gangsters escape from a Nevada jail and take hostages along with a car at a gas station. The group is forced to detour to a desert ghost town reserved for an imminent atomic test in order to avoid a police roadblock. Another film set at an atomic test site (see THE ATOMIC KID), but with bleaker consequences.

OCCUPYING A PUBLIC SHELTER
Like 'Information Program Within Public Shelters,' this is another over-optimistic introduction to post-Bomb shelter life courtesy the U.S. government. This amusing film has such an incongruous assortment of scenes that it makes underground living seem like some sort of family summer camp sponsored by the military.
