The Night the World Exploded (1957) - (Kathryn Grant) US one-sheet

This is a 27" x 41" US one-sheet for the 1957 Fred F. Sears film The Night the World Exploded based on a story by Jack Natteford and Luci Ward and starring Kathryn Grant as Laura Hutchinson. Plot summary: Just when Dr. David Conway [William Leslie] has perfected a machine that can predict earthquakes, multiple earthquakes begin occurring that herald the end of the world. Fortunately a way of preventing the catastrophe is discovered that involves blasting deep trenches in the earth so artificial rain can be used to flood subterranean deposits of a mysterious newly discovered addition to the atomic table. While these events are unfolding Dr. Conway and his assistant Laura Hutchinson gradually realize they are in love and have a nice long kiss in the final scene after they assure each other the world has been saved.
