On the Beach: In 1964, atomic war wipes out humanity in the northern hemisphere; one American submarine finds temporary safe haven in Australia, where life-as-usual covers growing despair. In denial about the loss of his wife and children in the holocaust, American Captain Towers meets careworn but gorgeous Moira Davidson, who begins to fall for him. The sub returns after reconnaissance a month (or less) before the end; will Towers and Moira find comfort with each other?

I can't believe this has only got 3 stars?! It's one of the most important films of the cold war period. Just a couple or years before the Cuban Missile Crisis, this film really reflected the ambient fear of the =Bomb=. All those I've met who had seen this film when it first came out found it to be horribly possible and =haunting=. Some may find it slightly dated but I strongly encourage those who enjoy what I call =What-if-Sci-Fi= to give it a look.

This is a very touching movie. I have seen it twice. It is about atomic warfare, and its aftermath. Imagine living in a world after the bombs go off. Could you survive, could you cope, could you watch the people you love suffer emotionlly, while the rest of the world dies of radiation sickness, and you're waiting for the winds to carry the deadly radiation your way. A very sad movie, but good. Worth the watch. 5+/5 rating.

Left a drivein theatre in 1960 after watching the movie. All cars seemed to go left and right from the exit and ours was the only one that went straight through. For the next 10 minutes going through the main streets of St. Catharines, ON, we didn't see anyone either walking or driving. A bit disconcerting after watching "On the Beach".

Gregory Peck is great but it is difficult to watch it all the way through because of how sad it is. I can't really add to what Treeflower said.

5 out of 5 stars. Stanley Kramer is an amazing director, as usual. Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Anthony Perkins, Fred Astaire. Terrific movie.

American films from the 1950's weren't known for stark, gritty realism, and this de luxe soap opera is no exception!
