Leslie or others please feel free to add illustrations for my post; this film is loved by so many, it would be a shame for the post to lack visual accompaniment.

I hope these are to your liking.

This from an IMDb commenter: This was one of the last science-fiction adventure relics from the 1950s to early 1960s before the JFK assassination changed the mood of this genre to something less innocent and more grim. Lovely Julie Adams portrays a psychologist who tests engineer William Lundigan to ascertain that he can lead a construction effort to build the world's first underwater metropolis. After completion, the couple plus several others, move down to the city, until it is discovered that it was built on a fault line, creating climactic chaos.

Julie Adams as the scientist:



This, I presume, is part of the "testing" process:



Julie Adams was also in The Creature from the Black Lagoon

I just noticed that Y was skipped.  I think the rules preclude me from playing it, since I played A.  Any takers?

A Japanese movie from director Ishiro Honda, this movie has been described as "Japan's answer to When Worlds Collide."                   

Here's the plot summary from IMDb:

In 1980, a giant planetoid named Gorath is discovered to be on a collision course with Earth. Even though it is smaller than Earth, its mass is huge enough to crush the Earth and destroy it. A mission sent to observe Gorath is destroyed after all the orbiting ships are drawn into the planetoid. A later mission is sent to observe and the crew barely leaves before suffering the same fate. However Astronaut Tatsuo Kanai is left in a catatonic state due to his near death experience. The Earth's scientists then come up with a desperate plan to build giant rockets at the South Pole to move Earth out of Gorath's path before it is too late.



The next letter is "B".
