Trivia

The shimmering Galaxy Being effect was achieved by filming actor William O. Douglas in a brown rubber alien outfit which was coated with glycerin to reflect the hot lights shone against it. In post-production, this footage was negative-reversed and then superimposed onto the main footage. See more »

Goofs

The alien tells the human to move his finger due east on the star chart, however in space there are no normal compass-based directions since these relate to a planet while on the planet. The alien could have said left or right and been correct. See more »

Quotes

Carol Maxwell: What makes you think you can invent the atom bomb? Who do you think you are?
Alan Maxwell: Nobody, nobody at all. But the universe doesn't care about that.
