I found it a very interesting film and at the time a bit frightening. Not a dull movie at all, but I would love to see it again to see if I feel the same. I have great appreciation for science fiction and horror films of the 1950s. They show great imagination even without the hype of technological advancement. They are creative because they had to be innovative with what existed at the time. This was a cold-war era film about a missile that got locked into a deadly low earth orbit by the Germans trying to shoot it down at it initial close approach. With the speed the missile was circling the earth at, the shockwave and the frictional activity created air temperatures in excess of one million degrees.
