Storyline

The prophecies of Nostradamus, written hundreds of years ago, are interpreted as predicting certain post-World War II events. These include the ascension of Queen Elizabeth II to the throne of England, the creation of the United Nations, the Korean War, atomic bomb testing, the trials of Communist spies in the early 1950s, and new ways that astronomers will study the universe. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@verizon.net>

An MGM PROPHECIES OF NOSTRADAMUS Short Subject.

Why do so many people believe in these thousand curious verses? Because NOSTRADAMUS SAYS SO!

This intriguing little film tells of the background of the famous seer Michel de Nostradamus (1503-1566) and of some of his prophecies concerning the 20th Century, including World War Two, the Atomic bomb, the United Nations, the Korean Conflict, and the Succession to the British Throne.

***************************

Often overlooked or neglected today, the one and two-reel short subjects were useful to the Studios as important training grounds for new or burgeoning talents, both in front & behind the camera. The dynamics for creating a successful short subject was completely different from that of a feature length film, something akin to writing a topnotch short story rather than a novel. Economical to produce in terms of both budget & schedule and capable of portraying a wide range of material, short subjects were the perfect complement to the Studios' feature films.
