Titre français de ce film : LE VOL DU SECRET DE L'ATOME
Nous ne trouvons quasiment rien sur la carrière cinématographique de Lydia Clarke, si ce n'est sa participation très discrète dans le film "WILL PENNY LE SOLITAIRE" dans le rôle de Mrs Fraker.
J'ai quelques informations sur d'autres films dans lesquelles elle aurait joué, mais je vais d'abord vérifier la véracité avant de les publier.

One of the joys of watching old movies particularly those shot on location is that the viewer sees a place, an environment as it was. Such is the case with "Atomic City" starring Gene Barry and Lee Aaker and directed by Jerry Hopper. It was made in 1952 and largely filmed in New Mexico's Santa Fe and Los Alamos regions. It hit the screens while America was still reeling from the shock that the Cold War was real and Communist spies had actually infiltrated the labs at Los Alamos. In fact two American civilians, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were awaiting execution the following year after being convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage during a time of war. Writer Sydney Boehm's story is simple. The young son of a Los Alamos nuclear scientist is kidnapped and the ransom demand is the design of the H-bomb. The 85 minute production is entertaining but its real quality lies in the actual locations such as the famous La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe, the shops of that period and of course Los Alamos known as "Atomic City," a name that still lingers today on the town's bus service. In the longish finale the viewer is treated to scenes filmed at the Bandelier National Monument with its famous Frijoles Canyon and the unique cliff dwellings of the Indian ancestor. The movie is now sixty years old and for lovers of visual history it provides a great treat.
