" Description Americans test a nuclear weapon at the Earth's South Pole at the exact moment the Soviets explode a device at the North Pole, jolting the earth's axis out of alignment and causing catastrophic changes in global weather patterns. To make matters even worse, the planet has been dislodged from its orbit and is now hurtling toward the sun. It's a race against time as a scientist brainstorms for ways to evade catastrophe. Yay! Classic British Sci-Fi from the 60's. "

"Superior sci-fi based on atmosphere and sparkling interplay between the lead characters. Best script the genre has ever produced. Fact. Hasn't aged a day."
