On the Beach (1959)

September 27, 2013 @ 7:30 PM - 9:45 PM


On the Beach (1959)

IN-PERSON: Actors Ed Begley, Jr.; Donna Anderson; Pete Hammond.

Directed by Stanley Kramer

Producer-director Stanley Kramer’s arresting speculative fiction considers the possibility of nuclear annihilation from the perspective of its global aftermath, as a group of Americans, stationed in Australia, await the arrival of a radiation cloud that has decimated the northern hemisphere. Anticipating the disaster epic by a good decade, even tapping some of the future stars of the genre, Kramer and screenwriter John Paxton martial an emotional story of human folly.
