About this film

A light-hearrted comedy about the effects of nuclear radiation, as Susan Hayward and John Wayne debate whether they got cancer from filming downwind from a nuclear test site in 1953. Shot in the 80s when 3/4" VHS was cutting-edge technology. However, thanks to the half-life of nuclear fallout, should remain topical for another 25,000 years.
