WORLD WITHOUT END
   Film (1956). Allied Artists. Written/dir Edward Bernds, starring Hugh Marlowe, Nancy Gates, Rod Taylor, Lisa Montell, Nelson Leigh. 80 mins. Colour.
   After orbiting Mars, a spaceship goes through a timewarp. The 4 astronauts land on a post- HOLOCAUST Earth in AD2508 and find the surface inhabited by grotesque MUTANTS and giant spiders, while the remaining humans live underground - the men impotent, the women sexy, the race dying out. The astronauts stay, clearing the surface with bazookas. This is not a particularly low-budget film, and the effects (by Milton Rice) are passable, but direction and design are poor. The story is an unacknowledged inversion of H.G. WELLS's THE TIME MACHINE (1895), with Morlock surrogates on the surface and Eloi surrogates underground. Wells'snovel was to be better filmed by George PAL as The TIME MACHINE (1960).
