It’s July 4th and too hot to watch fireworks outside! You can still remain cool and watch the fireworks of “When Worlds Collide,” a 1951 science fiction film starring Richard Derr and Barbara Rush. You join the stars on a ninety minute adventure as new star Bellus is discovered, but found to be on a collision course with Earth. It’s determined a slight chance remains to avoid destruction by building a spaceship to hop to planet Zyra in orbit around Bellus. The plot even includes a senescent millionaire, Sydney Stanton, played by John Hoyt, who funds project and attempts to pull all the strings. Drama peaks when Dr. Cole Hendron, played by Larry Keating, prevents Stanton along with himself from boarding. Stanton attempts to walk in a desperate and vain effort to board as the ship blasts off. When Worlds Collide filmed in technicolor, a favorite of the present writer for its saturated colors. Please enjoy by dropping below the fold, as always, admission is free!
