By September, Chris and Linda were ready. They were not astronomers, but electronics experts. They planned to make contact with the canal builders with a new type of transmitter, based on blueprints Chris found while in Nuremberg, Germany. Using a small steerable antenna and a special receiver to receive distant signals, they began transmitting.
At first, only their own messages were returned, but then, with an idea suggested by their son and the help of a naval codebreaker, they finally are able to exchange some rudimentary messages. At first there was worldwide euphoria, but then panic sets in when it was realized their lives were about to be turned upside down. The Western economy collapses.
Washington is rattled. The decoding operation is transferred to the Pentagon; all decoded messages will be classified. But then, when the first religious message is decoded, the President allows its release. The panic in the West turns to joy and the inspired religious downtrodden in Russia overthrow their communist government. World peace at last. . . .
Overall: Curiously, the whole world seemingly believes that the Martians have been contacted, that God resides on Mars, however, circumstances have prevented them from learning the true source of some of these messages. Curiouser still, the vague clues on the remaining messages leaves the audience at sea as well ... you see ... the devil is in the details. . . .
Picture (DVD - 2006): 2.5 to 3, black & white. Subtitles: none. Extras: trailers & intermission films.
Well, that would be telling. This takes place a few years after WWII, when the disapora of German scientists could be taken for granted. One of those secrets made its way to the West, but the discoverer himself reappeared in Soviet Russia. The power in that balance of power was the ability to communicate by radio with the inhabitants of Mars. After a slow start (using Morse code!), the Martians send wonderful secrets of long life, free power, and an end to hunger. In proper terrestrial style, the people of Earth turn this into catastrophe, rioting to save obsolete jobs, and demanding their slice of the Martian pie before Earth's scientists have a chance to decode the recipe.
It turns out that there is one secret behind all the others, though. Something over-arching, fundamental, flatly unbelievable to many, far too believable to others - and possibly false. There's a message here, one that doesn't work for me, but it doesn't have to. The buildup to it, the Cold War competition down to the final moments, and a little quaint cheesiness make this a real winner.
