One Minute to Zero (1952)

Using refugees as human shields, North Korean troops advance on Col. Steve Jankowski and his dug-in troops. Jankowski orders his gunners to fire warning shots short of the advance. Again and again the cannons roar, aiming closer each time.

    Comments about One Minute To Zero:

    Being a Howard Hughes Production--left lots to be desired. Not nearly enough money spent on making the film. Nother worng with the cast and story and is OK for a late night watching sometime. This one is worthy of being in a collection--but will never top my favorite 100 movies list.

    I would not recommend it to a friend UNLESS-they were avid fans of Robert Mitchum, Charles McGraw and Richard Egan--or of Korean War movies.

          movie quality was great and smooth but the sound quality had a lot to be desired. Talking was so low that you could hardly hear them and the action was way to loud.
