On the Beach DVD for sale An interesting, dated, black & white portrayal of the "end times" at the hand of man by nuclear war and the following fallout. It is a movie to ponder in 2006 as world leaders continue to tout nuclear bombs. Maybe people should prepare by purchasing cyanide pills as they do in this movie. Moral: "Wake-up" while you still have time! For a classic movie with a script that is relavent today, see "Network" (1976).

||Let's pray it never happens!!|
On the Beach movie Well acted drama, and though highly fictional, yet at the time it was made the cold war between the 2 super- powers was at its peak!! Fortunately, now there is only one super-power left, and the events mentioned therein are unlikely to occurr. Notwithstanding, it still well-worth to see and enjoy.

||Just as good as I remembered it when I first saw it in 1959|
This movie brings to lite just what could occur when things are not taken seriously. We all need to watch just to make us more aware of the potential possibilities.

||On the Beach a success|
On the Beach video This powerful drama about the affects of nuclear war is a true classic. After watching the film, one can not help but value his life. It will give you new insight on world peace and the power that rests on the fingertips of the human race. Performances are superb--even the talented Astaire hangs up his top hat and tails for his first dramamtic role as a alcoholic scientist, which is successfully performed. This is a must-have film if you're a classic movie collector.
