The 1947 Dramatization Of The Development Of The Atomic Bomb Starring Brian Donlevy And Hume Cronyn In All Regions DVD Format!

This film seeks to chronicle in docudramatic form the declassified history of the Manhattan Project that resulted in the creation of the atomic bomb, based on an idea of actress Donna Reed and her high school science teacher, Edward R. Tompkins, who worked on the project. The film's title was given by President Harry S. Truman.

From the film opening:

"...amid the three thousand year old redwoods of California, scientists and dignitaries are burying a time capsule. At the base of these trees that have watched the rise and fall of many civilizations, these records of atomic progress will rest until the year 2446... among the many items and records sealed within the time capsule were a movie projector, with instructions for its use engraved on copper, and a print of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture dramatization THE BEGINNING OR THE END, a title expressing the fear of people today that a future atomic war may destroy all humanity; a message to future generations. Come what may, our civilization will have left an enduring record behind it; ours will be no lost race... You are about to see the motion picture sealed in the time capsule for the people of the 25th Century."
