The year 1960 gave us a pair of disaster movies that could hardly be more different; yet each in its own way is ridiculously enjoyable:




I have copied over The Last Voyage, a shipboard disaster movie with the highest disaster-to-running-time ratio I’ve yet encountered, plus the most realistic special effects, to boot…as they should be, inasmuch as a real ocean liner was destroyed for our edification.








And I have reviewed The Crowded Sky, an airborne disaster movie which has one of the lowest disaster-to-running-time ratios I’ve yet encountered, plus some of the dodgiest model-work ever to emanate from a major studio.
