When Pvt. Robert Rinaldo walks from the taxi that's just brought him to the Wichita County factory, the taxi reverses and hits a structure. The sound is quite audible and the actor playing Rinaldo automatically reacts to it, half turning to look. See more »


Lieutenant Minns: You tried to contain me once. Didn't work.
Adam Ballard: Our weapons are pitiful against you, aren't they?
Lieutenant Minns: I didn't mean it that way.
[Smiles in an effort to set Ballard at ease]
Adam Ballard: I did. You smile at me, and I get a chill. You're smiling with a piece of your mind that doesn't belong to you.

Part Two Is Better Than Part One
19 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Robert Duvall continues to deal with genius alien trouble makers.

As another poster noted, you can just watch Part Two, without seeing Part One, and follow the story very well. In fact The Inheritors actually feels like a more solid production if you just watch Part Two.

Don't get me wrong, Part One is fine, however Part Two is a really solid hour from beginning to end, while Part One slowly moves along at times.

So take your pick: watch all of it or just Part Two if you are rushed for time.

Note: the director of this hour would later direct Star Trek's outstanding Where No Man Has Gone Before.
