This film was produced directly by Allied Artists (formerly Monogram Pictures). It was made in hopes of shedding Monogram's "poverty row" image. It was given a larger budget, shot in color and CinemaScope and ran a full reel longer than their usual 60- to 70-minute running time common to "B" pictures. Allied Artists was able to book it under percentage contracts rather than flat rates. See more »
The model of the Earth seen over the opening credits has a number of geographical errors in the continents in the Northern Hemisphere. Among these: northern Europe is shown completely landlocked, with no Baltic Sea, or distinguishable Scandinavia or British Isles; Greenland is largely gone; the northeast Pacific coastline of Russia is inaccurate; and much of the Japanese archipelago is missing.

Today was the first time I have seen this movie. Although I adore the SCI-FI genre, I really don't dribble or quibble over Special Effects like smaller-minded viewers. I much rather watch a SCI-FI movie that has a good story and fairly good acting.
Folks so quickly forget what pre-2001 A Space Odyssey and pre-Star Wars SCI-FI movies were like and become jaded in their views. Suddenly all perspective is gone. Goodness, these were simple times in the mid-50's, have some compassion. We have come far even in comparison to 50 years ago.
WORLD WITHOUT END offers a story taking off from the classic Time Machine and anticipating the post-apocalyptic nightmare of Planet of the Apes. It presents yet another version of what could be the future. The sets and complete production values are all fine and well realized.
But what is important here is the story and the hope that mankind can survive through any adversity because he has and will always have the will to live and carry on. Warts and all.
I would recommend this to any real fan of storytelling.
