Prepare: End Of The World Movies From The Past

 It's funny. When I was a kid, our TV had three or four VHF channels and maybe two UHF channels. But I could stay up late on a Friday or Saturday night and watch dozens of "B" movies from the 40's and 50's every weekend without fail. Now, I have cable with five billion channels and most of these great (and some very bad movies) never see the light of day anymore. Instead, it's a steady stream of reality shows and made for TV movies.

Thankfully, we have YouTube to solve another of our many problems. During the 40's, 50's and 60's, hundreds of "end of the world" movies were made. Most were forgettable (and forgotten) while a few became classics. Here's a sample of some of the long and forgotten:

The 27th Day! (Yep, that's the same guy from War of the Worlds, Gene Barry!)

The Day the World Ended! (This movie was so "great" they made two versions and I was fortunate enough as a kid to see both. Check out this version with a young Mannix, Mike Connors, as the bad guy)

Invasion USA! (Not the Chuck Norris remake!).
