Al Chop refers to his son as "Chip." This would make his son Chip Chop. See more »
The April 7 1952 issue of Life Magazine had Marilyn Monroe on the cover, not Harry Truman. It was her first magazine cover. It was the U.F.O. issue though, with the blurb for it in the upper right corner, as shown in the film. See more »
The "lost" 1950's science fiction film -- that isn't FICION!
It would seem that hardly anybody has seen this remarkable film: those who have seen it don't soon forget it. It's kind of like a 1950's science FACT film that tops most of the 1950's science FICTION films which thrilled so many young viewers during that magic decade.
The movie begins and ends by naming a daunting number of professional and government agencies who authenticate the claims which UFO makes. If the viewer keeps in mind the strict accountability this motion picture holds itself to, the remarkable events the film documents are impossible to doubt. There is absolutely no attempt at sensationalism. These are the facts about unidentified flying objects -- and the facts are very disturbing.
I recognized several familiar voices among the narrators, people whose talents were closely associated with the sci-fi movies of the 1950s. In terms of my enjoyment of the film, this proved to be some very sweet icing on the cake. It was a fond tie-in to great movies like `Forbidden Planet', `War of the Worlds', and other classics from that Great Age of Curiosity -- the 1950s.
A prerecorded tape is available through Amazon.com. I'm going to get it. So should you.
