One's expectations for an early-60s B movie from American International
Pictures are never very high. But this movie was a surprisingly well thought
out & thought-provoking story.
Just as a family has left LA for a vacation in the woods, the US suffers a
massive nuclear attack on all its major cities from, uh, an unnamed enemy.
(Wink wink...) But you won't find any marauding mutants here. In fact this
film isn't about nuclear war per se. It really wants to explore the nature
of civilized society. The father, well portrayed by Ray Milland, is grimly
determined to protect his family at all costs for as long as it takes for
order & civil authority to be restored, which he's sure will be a long time
The father is a good man, but a little paranoid & controlling. This probably
wouldn't be noticeable in normal times, but now they're in a panicked rush
to escape the LA metro area & gather enough supplies to last for months in
the wilderness - ahead of all the other people who are starting to clog up
the freeways & empty out the grocery stores along the escape route. The
contradiction between following the rules & protecting your loved ones in
desperate times is very effectively illustrated as he makes some reckless
decisions along the way.
Normally for a low budget 60's film like this, I wouldn't even bother
thinking about how it could've been improved. But since it's so good at
presenting a major moral dilemma in a realistic way, think of these nits as
a sign of respect: Milland's character could use a little more
introspection, but of course so could a lot of early 60's dads! (Not that
Milland's performance was wooden - it was great. But his character had a
very constricted personality.) His wife could use a little more
assertiveness. She actually realizes this, and explains that she's still in
shock over the attack - but after Sept. 11 a lot of us understand that after
a good catharsis we can deal with a lot of trauma that initially would
immobilize us. After having a good cry, she could've acted as a better
conscience for some of the father's more paranoid acts. Also the daughter's
character needed some fleshing out.
But of course this is an early 60's film, and clearly made on a low budget.
And given its time & budget it is an amazing gem of a film. Definitely one
to seek out!
