After the Apocalypse: Rare Atomic Classics on TCM

Turner Classic Movies cable network screens rarely seen Atomic Classics FIVE and THE WORLD, THE FLESH, AND THE DEVIL as part of its After The Apocalypse program Friday May 9.

Arch Obler's FIVE (1951), the first overtly "atomic" end-of-the world film, is a quietly chilling depiction of the recent aftermath of an atomic war and its effect on a quintet of survivors. One especially disturbing scene features a trip to a decimated city where civil defense sirens continue to wail.

THE WORLD, THE FLESH, AND THE DEVIL is a rarely seen end-of-the-world film set in New York City where Harry Belafonte, Inger Stevens and Mel Ferrer are seemingly the last three people on earth following a sodium radiation attack by an unnamed force.

Also on the program is Stanley Kramer's 1959 ON THE BEACH - all three of the films are part of the CONELRAD 100 list of Atomic Films.
