There’s a 50th anniversary screening in Santa Monica this evening of Stanley Kramer‘s On The Beach, an end-of-the-world drama with Gregory Peck, Ava Garner, Anthony Perkins, Fred Astaire, etc. It seems a little too reserved by today’s standards but it holds up half-decently, especially those submarine-visit scenes to the tomb cities of San Diego and San Francisco. A little on-the-nose (“There’s still time, brother”) but subliminally moving. Exquisite black-and-white photography by Giuseppe Rotunno (The Leopard, Fellini Satyricon, Amarcord).
