These Atomic Classics have always held a special place in my heart, or maybe i just need and ant-acid tablet. Either way, I just can't seem to get enough of them, and have accumulated a massive collection of these over the years. Kudos to WAC for continuing the flow of features, both big and small!!

Was Vickers a Playboy model, or am I wrong about that? No matter what, a very pretty lady. Have always enjoyed this flick. I have an old DVD of it that I pull out now and then, not sure how I would justify a new disc of this one to the missus.

I read somewhere that she did a layout for Playboy. I don't remember the topic coming up in the commentary, however, even though they spent a long time talking about her career apart from this movie.

You are correct, she was the Platmate for July 1959.

What a waste of a BD upgrade for a short B/W low grade movie...come on Warner give us the big titles left idle in your vaults....
Sorry Matt, but there are some of us out there that are thrilled to see this and similar titles being released by WAC, thankyou Mr F, for releasing BOTH the high and the Low! ;)

Some of us dearly enjoy "short, b/w, low-grade movies." I watch them frequently...they offer much nostalgia, tapping into our childhood memories. Don't even try to take that away from us old geezers! And, as presented by WAC, they are no longer low-grade...they look like they were made ten years ago. And, although short, this one adds a commentary track, which even some of the three-hour-long+ Blu-rays do not.

Finally, as to the second part of your comment...have you seen the WAC announcements of today?
