“The Day the Fish Came Out” (1967) is a Greek/British co-production written and directed by Michael Cacoyannis (who also designed the film’s bizarre costumes). The film is a satirical sci-fi take on an actual incident in which two military aircraft collided over Spain causing four hydrogen bombs to rain down amongst the debris. Two of the bombs partly detonated similarly to a dirty bomb creating radioactive contamination in the area that persists to this day. In the film version, when a deadly payload called “Container Q” is dropped over a Greek resort island Americans disguised as tourists and real estate developers race against time to recover it in a dark comedy of errors reminiscent of Dr. Strangelove.
