'Timeslip' aka 'Atomic Man' (1956)

An atomic scientist is found floating in a river with a bullet in his back and a radioactive halo around his body. The radioactivity has put him seven-and-a-half seconds ahead of us in time. He teams up with a reporter to stop his evil double from destroying his experiments in artificial tungsten"

Andre's Notes: "A friend of mine alway said that anything with 'brain' in the tile has got to be bad, and he would always refer to the Star Trek episode "Spock's Brain" to prove his point, since it is considered the worst Trek episode ever made. I, on the other hand, have always proclaimed that anything with the word 'atomic' in the title would give you a good knee-slapping time. And I was proved wrong only once when I saw
the movie "The Atomic Man" (1956) (aka: "Timeslip") which turned out to be a fantastic
A-quality movie."

The movie starred Gene Nelson, better known as a Hollywood 'Song and Dance' man
and Faith Domergue, who was one of those B Movie Babes that never quite made it big.
Probably more memorable was a small part by Charles Hawtrey of 'Carry on..." fame. The
thumb on the left isnt from the movie.
