The 1965 cult action film Crack in the World has been released on DVD. Here is the synopsis:
Steven Sorenson (Dana Andrews) and his wife and fellow scientist Dr. Maggie
Sorenson (Janette Scott) plan to utilize the geothermal energy of the Earth's
interior by detonating a powerful thermonuclear device deep within the Earth’s
core. Despite warnings by Maggie’s ex-flame and fellow scientist Dr. Ted
Rampian (Kieron Moore), Dr. Sorenson proceeds with the experiment after he
secretly learns that he is terminally ill. This experiment causes a crack
within the earth's crust and threatens to split the earth in two if it is not
stopped in time.
