A surprisingly pacifist 1950s sci-fi film featuring a big alien brain that hides in a cave and telepathically controls the children of American nuclear missile scientists. The brain wants the children to sabotage their parents' project (the shipping of a hydrogen bomb into outer space),

so it compels them to spout anti-nuclear proliferation messages to their folks in the hopes that the adults will wise up and stop messing around with dangerous atoms. The parents don't pay much attention, so the kids are forced to take more severe action and physically stop the launch with the

help of the giant brain.
