I love this movie! I loved it as a kid for the special effects (what a great rocketship! And that launch system!) As an adult, I enjoy the film for the brisk pace, plausible plot-line, wonderful character stereotypes, and I've always loved planes, rockets, sci-fi, space stuff, et al. It's also interesting in the context of the "Cold War" and the threat of nuclear annihilation. And I've never understood why Richard Derr wasn't more successful. Tall, good looking, blond with a deep voice--do I smell some studio politics? Anyway, I think this little movie is just a whole bunch of fun to watch and it's very well crafted for any era. Enjoy!

one of the few movies i "keep" to view at least annually.Reviewed byrfreem01Vote: 7/10
A world ending and going to a new world. This movie was made from a book. The first story Before Worlds Collide, the second After Worlds Collide. If they remade this story like it was and made the second like it was you could see a better story. I liked the movie but I liked the book better.
At the time this very well done film was made, few people realized that it would not take a rouge planet to destroy the Earth, just a small mountain around eight or ten miles across. That would be the end of about 80 to 90% of all life on Earth as well as most of us. What is interesting when you compare this film to say "Deep Impact", made almost 50 years later, is the fact that the original, "When Worlds Collide" got it right for the most part. The special effects were remarkable as well when you consider no computer animation existed at the time and so much was done with miniatures. The spaceship was also a very remarkable in that it did not stretch credibility. The design and even the method of launching was accurate with the best projected future engineering of the day. However, would such a spaceship really be able to be constructed using late 1940s, early 50s technology? This craft was about the size of a NASA Space Shuttle. I had read that if the Space Shuttle was fitted with a passenger compartment, it could carry about 45 people. Again the writers and directors got it right. I wonder if anyone knows if Werner Von Braun was a consultant on this film? The really improbable part however is that one of the two planets (the one that does not strike the Earth) has an oxygen- nitrogen atmosphere and a surface gravity identical to that of the Earth, perfect to set up housekeeping on for a rebirth of humanity. I also like the idea that the film does not sacrifice story line and drama for special effects. As in a later "disaster from space" film "Meteor", remember to keep watching the sky!
