Hell and High Water is a 1954 Technicolor Cold War drama film from 20th Century Fox, starring Richard Widmark, Bella Darvi, and Victor Francen. The film, directed by Samuel Fuller, was made to showcase CinemaScope being used in the confined sets of a submarine (not to be confused with the 1933 film by the same name). Before the credits, an off-screen voice-over narrates: In the summer of 1953, it was announced that an atomic bomb of foreign origin had been exploded somewhere outside of the United States. Shortly thereafter it was indicated that this atomic reaction, according to scientific reports, originated in a remote area in North Pacific waters, somewhere between the northern tip of the Japanese Islands and the Arctic Circle. This is the story of that explosion. ()
