ATOMIC WAR BRIDE / Jadran Film - 1960

We finally took the advice from pal Greg Goodsell in 2007 when he suggested that we review this here movie from Yugoslavia. The story's about John and Maria, as a war starts, planes fly overhead and the bombs start dropping. John is mobilized by the military minutes after the marriage ceremony, then, he and Maria are reunited just as an atomic bomb decimates their country.

I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our Atomic M-80, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a sample from... ATOMIC WAR BRIDE!

War has been declared and the military goes into the streets to pass out plastic suits to protect the civilians from radiation. You can hear the instructions being given on how to put the damn thing on in the sound clip.

John's suit is defective but there are no more to hand out. I remember in high school Algebra class in 1964, our teacher, Mr. Ward, replied to a student who thought their grade should have been higher. He said... Well, you know what they say in Russia, that's tough!

So, John has to go hide behind trash cans in an alley to feel half way safe!

I just had to show this photo because there's a beautiful 1957 Oldsmobile in the shot.

An interesting contrast shot with a woman questioning a soldier in fully weird looking war gear.

Bombs start falling at John and Maria's wedding, not a good start for a honeymoon.

John is drafted immediately and joins his pals to play war. An important exercise is to train the trigger finger to work properly!

The political leaders show the country that they have launched an A-Bomb against the enemy.

And, guess what the enemy does?!

Tit for tat, that's what the Bible sez... John and Maria head off into the big mess to see what they can see. That is one wasted V-Dub there!

Well, the worst ending ever... Maria dies in John's arms, end of story. Great. Join us Wednesday when the busiest dude in the universe brings us another cool post.

Not a bad little movie, actually! I have it on a "double bill" DVD with "This is Not a Test" (, which I got from Something Weird Video.
