For the English-language version, another actor dubbed in the voice for Martin Balsam's character (even though Balsam was quite obviously speaking English in the film). See more »
Although the movie is set in Great Britain, none of the prominently featured vehicles are right-hand-drive except for the Land Rover and a briefly seen Hillman Minx. This is understandable in the case of several American cars, as right-hand-drive model availability was spotty in the time period, but it is not logical for the British-built Mini and Triumph TR3 seen in the film to be left-hand-drive in their home market.

Why do I watch movies like this ? - other than I have some weird misguided masochistic belief that one day I will find a true gem amongst all this dross I can't think one one good reason. This movie was dross from start to finish - but semi-hilarious dross. Where else but in a bad Italian dubbed movie could you find heated exchanges of surreal mangled English like this one between a honest military type and the sinister chief of a secret X-files like organisation dedicated to hiding "The Truth":
Man in Black: Silence is best for us until we are able to prove that the UFOs have no bellicose motives.
Military Type: In any event I find your interference abusive.
Man in Black: Whoever has to impose his will is.
I rewound the DVD (you know what I mean) a good half dozen times and I still can't make those lines mean anything sensible. My other fave line was:
"We can be quite hard on those who contravert our interests."
It's English Jim, but not as we know it.
The other highlights of this dull plonker of a movie for me were the totally spaced out acting of the photographer character at the start. Saddled with the worst haircut EVER in the history of everything, the man just wandered around looking like a stunned fish in a bad wig till kidnapped and forced to look at a piece of Plexiglas by some aliens. The aliens are most effectively not seen as a POV shot - hand held camera with a fish-eye lens - sort of spooky the first time but, used over and over again it lost its power (incidentaly, if it is a Point of View shot, it means the aliens always walk out of rooms backwards for some reason).
The film was set in "England". This meant the Spanish Italian set designers put some British number plates on a couple of English cars and put a Union Jack on our hero's press card... and that was about it. No other attempt to make it look like the UK at all.
Favourite moment? When the Foley artists didn't notice that characters they were foleying (is there such a word?) were no longer walking on gravel but were now on the lawn so their feet kept on making loud "crunch! crunch!" noises. Other than that, another total waste of 90 minutes of my life. I hope they prove those UFOs have no bellicose motives soon...
