An Unknown World in 1951 …

Unknown World (a.k.a. Night Without Stars) is a 1951 black-and-white science fiction adventure film from Lippert Pictures. It stars Bruce Kellogg, Marilyn Nash, Jim Bannon, and Otto Waldis.

The film’s storyline concerns an expedition seeking livable space deep beneath the Earth’s surface in the event a nuclear war makes surface life impossible. In 1951 nuclear war was an ever-present possibility. Only 6 years earlier, in 1945, nuclear weapons had been used in anger. Films such as Unknown World and The Day the Earth Stood Still  very much reflected this.
