Docudrama on the development of the first atomic bomb. Told from the perspective of a film recovered from a time capsule several hundred years into the future, the story is narrated by Robert Oppenheimer (Hume Cronyn) and Major General Leslie Groves (Brian Donlevy) beginning with the Nazis stated goal of developing an atomic bomb. Along with Britain and Canada, the U.S. reacts by beginning its own atomic program. The major developments are all presented: Fermi's successful atomic chain reaction; building the huge complex at Oak Ridge, Tenn.; the production of the first supply of plutonium; the testing in the Nevada desert; and finally the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima.

A part of history and I also fell in love with R. Walker
I agree I want to have this film to see again. I agree with the review about remembering the mud and dirt and I also fell in love with Robet Walker. I was about 11 when I saw it. I just recently read about an actual case of radiation poisoning that occurred there so the incident in the movie was based on truth. I have never forgotten the movie and much of it was excellent in every respect. Please bring it back in some form! Maybe the studio has a copy or the families of Robert Walker or Guy Williams since this was his first movie. There is a great deal of history in this movie and I have never seen one like it about that era since. I really enjoyed reading all the information and great reviews!
