Netflix Pick: On the Beach

This is a classic.

Netflix summary: In this 1959 doomsday classic, a U.S. submarine led by Capt. Dwight Towers (Gregory Peck) surfaces near Melbourne, where the passengers learn that nuclear war has wiped out most of humanity. And it won’t be long before radiation kills the Australians as well. The tense drama features standout performances by Peck, Ava Gardner as Towers’s lover, Fred Astaire as a guilt-wracked scientist and Anthony Perkins and Donna Anderson as newlyweds.

Excellent acting and a great story makes this a wonderful movie. Has has some sad moments and certainly not the end that I wanted to see – but worth watching.

On the Beach is available on Netflix.

  1. Actually this movie has been re-made as well and yes it can be very depressing, the truth usually is. The movie is very emotional and moving, if it does not invoke a tear at the end you may have some issues but overall this is a good movie.
