Anyone seen this one? A family from LA is vacationing in the mountains when a nuclear war takes place. They have to try and survive on what they can buy until the nation re-stabilizes...

Watched it today. Was okay.

"Panic in Year Zero" starring Ray Milland and I think was directed by him also. Also had Frankie Avalon [anybody remember him?]. I think it was 62 maybe a bit earlier. I've seen it over the years many times. Always liked how important the guns became almost instantly. And the the honesty and civility that the family tried to maintain.

Ahhh, Ray Milland...The Thing With Two Heads...with Rosie Greer...a classic.

Proof in the pudding that sooner or later...everybody gats to pay their bills.

I got it on video. It's a real good SHTF movie.
The dad knew what to do and took charge, unlike those weenies in Trigger Effect.
