TCM Greatest Classic Films: Sci-Fi Adventures DVD

SKU ID #334540
$19.98
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

Them!
Radiation-mutated ants - 12 feet long and capable of lifting tons - become giant problems for James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn, James Arness and all of Los Angeles. "Fascinating to watch. Them! is taut science fiction" (A.H. Weiler, The New York Times).

The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms
An A-bomb test in the Arctic awakens a gargantuan prehistoric dinosaur that makes New York City its stomping ground in the movie (from a story by Ray Bradbury and with superb special effects by Ray Harryhausen) that launched a string of Atomic Age creature features.

World Without End
Hugh Marlowe, Rod Taylor and other Mars-mission astronauts skid on a time warp into a post-apocalyptic future Earth marked by fear, mutant monstrosities and a diminishing group of subterranean survivors. Can these wayfarers from the past preserve our world's future?

Satellite In The Sky
A stalwart crew (and a female reporter stowaway) guides a stratospheric jet rocket ship on the first space flight. The mission also involves another first: the outer-space detonation of the feared tritonium bomb. But mechanical failures threaten to trigger disaster. Strap in for suspense!

        Two of these films are staples in the Science Fiction film greats of all time. The others are a bit more in the B rate category. It is still a great find and a must have for DVD collectors.

        I use this movie for my own entertainment. I bought this dvd for the movie Them! I really did not enjoy the other movies. The movie Them! Is a great movie. Ir makes you think what else could be in the desert where they tested atomic bombs.

          I missed a lot of the sci-fi classics because I was so little and didn't understand, but today, I love classics and I am building my collection one at the time. Out of this collection, the one I have been waiting for is "Them!" Boy was that fascinating.

              Bought it for Them. Wanted to recall my youth and share with my brothers and sister. Show my children and grandchildren what great, wholesome, no vulgar words, clean cut, and is still a awesome movie.
