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.
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.
CRACK IN THE WORLD is out now on Blu-ray from 101 Films. You can order it HERE or via the Amazon link below.
