From 1952, The Atomic City is a classic Cold War thriller and quite representative of its paranoid, Communist-fearing era.
Directed by Jerry Hopper (TV’s The Fugitive), the movie stars Gene Barry (The War of the Worlds) as happily married family man/nuclear physicist Frank Addison, whose life turns into a nightmare when his son Tommy (Lee Aaker, TV’s The Adventures Of Rin Tin Tin) is kidnapped. The nefarious culprits’ demands, not surprisingly, concern the secrets behind the making of an H-bomb!
Featuring vivid locales ranging from the mean streets of Los Angeles to the rocky terrain of Santa Fe, The Atomic City makes its Blu-ray debut from Olive two years after the label premiered the title on DVD, freshly mastered in high definition from a 35mm archive print.
No bonus features are on the Blu-ray release.
