101 Films presents CRACK IN THE WORLD (1965), a classic doomsday disaster movie from legendary director Andrew Marton (recipient of a special Academy Award for directing the chariot race in Ben-Hur). The film has been released on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.

 

Synopsis:

Dr. Steven Sorenson (Dana Andrews) and his wife and fellow scientist Dr. Maggie Sorenson (Janette Scott) plan to utilize the geothermal energy of the Earth’s interior by detonating a powerful thermonuclear device deep within the Earth’s core. Despite warnings from Maggie’s ex-flame and fellow scientist Dr. Ted Rampian (Kieron Moore), Dr. Sorenson proceeds with the experiment after he secretly learns that he is terminally ill. This experiment causes a crack within the earth’s crust and threatens to split the earth in two if it is not stopped in time.

 

Extras included on the release include a brand new audio commentary with film historians Allan Bryce and Richard Hollis.
