Science Fiction not Horror
Of all of the black and white 1950s science fiction movies, this one is near the very top of the list. That's partly because it's a Ray Bradbury story and he may be the best science fiction writer. The plot actually asks the viewer to think. Richard Carlson and Barbara Rush give solid performances and that desert setting, so familiar to 1950s science fiction movie fans, provides the perfect setting for a mysterious occurrence. It's a very entertaining film but it's not a horror story as labeled by TCM. It's science fiction and that's a whole different genre.
A TRULY DIFFERENT GREAT SCI-FI PIC.
Many great 50's science fiction movies, but never saw this one before. Extremely well done. Interesting plot, well acted. From the desert to L.A. to Nova Scotia to save the world from disaster from spinning out of orbit into outer space.
This film was excellent. they do not make movies like this anymore- good acting, and good script.I hopefully will not dream of aliens tonight,
I know that there must be alien life. If you know that there are millions of starts and trillions of planets then you can understand that there must be life in other orbs.There are beings higher in intelligence as well as lower in the infinite universe. I personally believe that we are being observed.
I saw this film when I was a child. I loved the film. Excellent sci fi. Wouldn't miss it
I was only 21 when I came across a flying saucer in the Arizona desert. The aliens were about 4 feet tall with big eyes and no hair. They didn't say anything but I was very fearful. They looked at me and I fled.
Loved this movie
I loved the film. I did see a flying saucer when I was in my 20's when I was traveling through the Arizona desert. It was miles away. You can see for miles ahead and behind in the desert at night. Other people saw it as well. It was not mentioned in nay paper and it went unnoticed.I have never seen anything like this again and I am 71 but it made me believe that we are NOT ALONE....
Aliens, There Everywhere(1953)
Classic look at extra-terrestrial life visiting Earth or are "They"? Jack Arnold's provocative and entertaining look at life from "Other" Worlds is stark and inquisitive as to the "How" and "Why's" of other Civilizations, assuming they are civil. John Putnam(Richard Carlson) a local desert scientist and his girl friend Ellen Fields(Barbara Rush) watch a mysterious object crash into the old Excelsior mine and then investigate with serious consequences. As it turns out the "Aliens" need time to recover from the catastrophic events and leave. Somewhat simplistic in its' attempt but extremely effective story telling, this Arnold gem is truly engaging ! Side note: Richard Carlson always open to the promise of tomorrow and it shows in his film roles and selections. A man who really believed in the possibilities of Tomorrow, Carlson took roles that built on todays' knowledge and opened pathways for the Future, there should be an award acknowledging this Actor! 5 stars out of 5...Barbara Rush delicious and lovely even when fighting the baddies...P.S. Notice the Joshua trees...
