Watching: Five (1951)

I just found a post-apocalyptic movie (good ones are among my favorite genres) I haven’t seen. The title refers to the number of survivors of an atomic bomb disaster that wipes out the rest of the human race. According to Robert Osborne of Turner Classic Movies, this film is the first to depict the aftermath of such a catastrophe.

Five (1951 film)

To quote a great philosopher, “happy, happy, happy.”

Update:  Well, it’s not action packed, that’s for sure.  But it’s pretty dark for the era, and definitely worth a watch.
