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 »
If you have the slightest interest in the UFO phenomenon then this is a must see. In many ways the word 'fiction' in relation to this movie does it a disservice. Sure everything is re-staged and re-enacted but only to highlight what Press Officer Albert Chop insists really did happen. From a social history point of view it's a little goldmine too. There appears to have been so much respect in American society throughout the 1950's and it oozes through here.
For the serious UFO enthusiast the inclusion of the original Tremonton and Grand Falls UFO footage makes it an invaluable movie from a research point of view.
