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.

Citizen, Communist, Counterspy, Herbert A. Philbrick, did indeed live three lives, but his fourth—and longest—life was spent speaking out against the "Communist Menace"... for a reasonable fee.
