Crack In The World (1965) Dr. Steven Sorenson plans to tap the geothermal energy of the Earth's interior by means of a thermonuclear device detonated deep within the Earth. Despite dire warnings by fellow scientist Ted Rampian, Dr Sorenson proceeds with the experiment after secretly learning that he is terminally ill. This experiment causes a crack to form and grow within the earth's crust, which threatens to split the earth in two if it is not stopped in time.

Movie Quote(s):
  • [Adjusting crotch on thermal suit] Steele: Tomorrow I'm taking this suit back to the tailor!
  • [Rampion is revived after being pulled unconscious from a volcanic vent] Simpson: How do you feel? Dr. Ted Rampion: Medium rare.
  • Sir Charles Eggerston: The question now is not who is to blame, but how we can stop the catastrophe. Dr. Ted Rampion: At present we don't know any way we can stop it. First, we have to learn to understand the natural forces involved, and if possible, find some way to control them in the time that is permitted to us. Sir Charles Eggerston: What is being done? Now? Dr. Ted Rampion: Every university, every scientist, every thinking military leader is helping us. Sir Charles Eggerston: Is there anything that we can do? Dr. Ted Rampion: Pray.
  • Dr. Ted Rampion: What's the hurry Stephen? Can't you wait for another Nobel Prize?
  • Sir Charles Eggerston: A crack in the world? [meeting erupts in chaos] Sir Charles Eggerston: Gentlemen! Gentlemen! Dont let this fall apart. We have work to do. We must hear Dr Rampion complete his report. You were saying that the crack is extending to the east. Dr. Ted Rampion: Along the Macedo Trench. It's following a geological flaw in the Earth's crust, known as the Macedo Fault. That runs from here, to the tip of India, veers off towards Indonesia, and terminates off the Australian continental shelf. Sir Charles Eggerston: How do you know that the crack will stop there? Dr. Ted Rampion: We don't. Sir Charles Eggerston: What if the crack keeps going? Right around the world? What happens then? Dr. Ted Rampion: Where the land masses split, the oceans will be sucked in, and the colossal pressure generated by the steam will rip the Earth apart, and destroy it. Indian Ambassador: You mean, the world will come to an end? Dr. Ted Rampion: The world as we know it, yes.
Movie Trivia:
  • 'Eugene Lourie' had two models of the gantry built. The second was made of balsa wood for the explosion scene. This insured complete destruction of the gantry while avoiding the danger of the set being sprayed by shrapnel.
