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 »

I have just watched The Cosmic Man for the first time and rather enjoyed it, despite reading several bad reviews about it. This was released on video in Britain as part of the Killer B's series, now out of print. I have an NTSC copy which is part of the excellent Science Fiction Gold series. It is basically a remake of he Day The Earth Stood Still.
A strange sphere from outer space lands in a canyon in California, and the Air Force come and investigate it. The same night, a strange, half invisible figure is seen roaming around the local town and not long after, a man in a rain coat and hat comes to stay at the local mountain lodge. He makes out he is a scientist who is investigating the sphere, but is actually the Cosmic Man from the sphere. After making the lodge owner's crippled son walk again, he is shot and the sphere explodes.
Despite being first billed, horror legend John Carradine as the Cosmic Man doesn't appear a great deal. This movie also stars Bruce Bennett, Angela Greene and Scotty Morrow as the crippled boy.
This movie is worth watching if you get the chance.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
