- Here's the last scene of Stanley Kramer's film based on Shute's On the Beach.
- If you start the clip at 7:29, you'll see some minor changes; do you think Shute would have approved of the very last shot?
- Looking ahead, a significantly abbreviated version of Secretary of War Henry Stimson's explanation of the decision to use the atom bomb on Japan.
- Here's a more complete (fully complete?) version; note there are typos that are confusing is a few spots.
Reading the full version, I see that the abbreviated version may give a very different impression.
