Lorentz pictured this as a film about the dangers of the Hydrogen Bomb. “This is a motion picture,” he explained, “that presents in dramatic form everything of importance concerning the atomic bomb and atomic energy that can be told the general public. It is not a scare movie, nor is it a propaganda film.” After years spent trying to find funding, he had to abandon the project. The files contain correspondence, research, and screenplay drafts.
