Contrary to the usual practice in the 1950s, the credits appear at the end rather than at the beginning of the movie. See more »
The microphone used to record Dr. Martin's confession is a desktop shortwave radio pushbutton microphone. When the button is up, it acts as a speaker. You have to depress the "talk" button on the base in order to transmit. The FBI agent just holds the neck of the mike stand without depressing the "talk" button. This type of microphone was incompatible with tape recorders then in use in the 1950s. See more »
Did everyone miss the comparison to aliens reported today?
I didn't think it was that bad of a movie. It has more drama, and mystery and not as much horror than I expected. The story does move a little slow but it did keep my attention. The so called special effects can fairly be called poor. A lot of attention by reviewers has been given to the aliens big eyes. The aliens did look pretty strange and almost laughable but did everyone miss the comparison there is to the big eyes of the so called "grays" that are supposedly being seen by people today. How about the abductees that talk about being probed and operated on by aliens today? This movie did have aliens with bulging eyes doing an operation on a human in 1954. I have trouble calling this a good movie, but I cannot really call it a bad movie either. I think it's worth watching. Don't expect too much, and view it objectively. You might like it.
