Them! is the first of the 1950s "nuclear monster" movies that terrorized a generation. When a nest of gigantic, irradiated ants is discovered in the New Mexico desert, they quickly become a national threat that finally culminates in a battle in the concrete sewers of Los Angeles.  Early effects aside, this is a true, great, and beloved sci-fi classic. Today’s films will be introduced by film historian Foster Hirsch, author of Hollywood and the Movies of the Fifties: The Collapse of the Studio System, the Thrill of Cinerama, and the Invasion of the Ultimate Body Snatcher—Television.
