Synopsis
A fiery comet is hurtling toward Phoenix, Arizona, and an astronomer's desperate warnings fall on deaf ears among city officials in this lengthy disaster tale highlighted by some striking special effects and miniature work. Publicity releases for this movie insisted that a record (for a TV film) 5,700 extras were used in the exodus sequences and that the miniature work was the most extensive ever created for television. Emmy Award nominations went to this film for Special Effects and Sound Editing.
