Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally titled Run For the Hills, Atomic Blonde is a frenetic satire of Cold War paranoia. Sonny Tufts plays a man so terrified by the prospect of nuclear war that he moves his family -- including wife Barbara Payton, who must be the "blonde" of the title -- into a cave. His preventative measures make Tufts the target of public ridicule, but he has the last laugh when he stumbles upon a gold mine. The huge familiar-face supporting cast includes John Hamilton (Editor Perry White on Superman), Paul Maxey (Jackie Cooper's father-in-law on the TV sitcom People's Choice) and William Fawcett (Old Pete on the Saturday morning kiddie show Fury). It is safe to assume that the George Sanders listed in the cast of Atomic Blonde is not the Oscar-winning film star of the same name.
