Deluge 1933
Triggered by a series of earthquakes on the West Coast of the United States, a massive tidal wave circles the globe and — in a prolonged and spectacular special effects sequence — wipes out New York City.

Martin Webster (Sidney Blackmer) survives the catastrophe but is separated from his wife (Lois Wilson) and children. Pairing up with a headstrong young woman (Peggy Shannon), Webster struggles to rebuild civiilzation and cultivate a new post-apocalyptic moral code amidst the pillagers and vigilantes who remain.

Also featured on this disc is the Pre-Code drama "Back Page", starring Deluge's Peggy Shannon as the new editor of a fledgling newspaper who bravely battles corruption.
