Living It Up

Norman Taurog
USA 1954
94 min

Probably assistant stationmaster Homer Flagg (Lewis) would have chosen this unorthodox way to New York even voluntarily, just to escape from the backwater called Desert Hole (!) infinitely. But who plans beforehand to land with a freight train in Los Alamos and spend the “last days”, in order of atomic contamination, as an object of public pity in New York? Homer and his doctor and friend (Martin), who selfishly diagnosed moribund, pull out all the stops - till physicians spread the bad news, that he is totally healthy.
