The latest UFO, a white globe levitating in a California canyon, is investigated by the Air Force, aided by physicist Karl Sorensen. Just big enough for one "man", the object seems impenetrable, but that night a half-invisible being visits the town, and a strange bundled-up man takes a room at Angela Green's mountain lodge, the investigators' headquarters. Sorensen thinks the Cosmic Man is benevolent, but to the colonel he represents either danger...or military advantage. Written by

While examining the sphere, an Air Force corporal places devices around the object. The devices are actually reflective grids used by film crews to adjust the lighting in specific parts of a shot. See more »
22 minutes in, outside the wooden lodge, when Sgt Gray hears footsteps in the dark, the shadow of the boom is visible as it moves across the rocks as he enters the lodge. See more »
Earnest but boring 50s sci-fi for John Carradine completists only. Borrowing ideas from DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL this film has ideas but forgets to add thrills to the mix. Carradine is only in the movie for maybe 5 minutes, and even then he's sometimes a black shadow giving lectures on the follies of man going into outer space. The film is an OK time-waster.
