Howard Hawks asked the US Air Force for assistance in making the film. He was refused because the top brass felt that such cooperation would compromise the U.S. government's official stance that UFOs didn't exist. See more »

This film scared me as a child and I find it chilling today. The script is tight and well written with hardly a wasted word. The cast is having a lot of fun and there are no irrelevant scenes. The tension builds from the very beginning and never lets up. Add to all this the weird audio and you may not want to watch this alone. Probably the best of the 50's--60's UFO movies. One can only wonder why this is not on DVD.
