When Dr. Grubber first arrives at the house he sits on the couch and begins asking John questions. Dr. Grubber's arm position alternates with the different camera shots from resting on the couch's arm being tucked in at his side (off the arm of the couch). Edith's position can be observed to be different between these shots as well. See more »

A seriously engaging film with a small twist at the end. Lots of small inputs of educational facts and figures but stay alert as they come quick and fast. I thought the mix of characters was excellent and the tale outstanding, but that is down to Bixby the writer. The acting was a little wooden but the story-line was fast enough (after a slightly slow start) to save dwelling on this. A sci-fi film with absolutely no special effects, relying solely on the story and a room-full of actors.
A highly recommended film that needs some concentration and thought to fully appreciate, and that might even cause a tear if you become fully immersed. A nice change from the usual no-brainer special effects charged tear-aways.
