Excellent and highly entertaining documentary about, as the title says, the history of UFOs. I'm not sure I'd label it as "brief" as it does run 34-minutes and is actually the longest running featurette on THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL release. Various UFO experts and naysayers are interviewed as they discuss the history of people seeing flying saucers and how a lot of people who believe go back to Roswell. We hear about some of the earliest sightings including one in 1897 and then we flash-forward up to around the 1947-50 period. The documentary discusses that the year after THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL was one of the busiest for UFO sightings. They also discuss some incidents that happened after the Robert Wise picture and we get several photos and some videos of what many believe are flying saucers. Of course, other subjects including abductions are discussed as well as what really happened in Roswell. Fans of UFOs are really going to enjoy this documentary as there are some very fun interviews to be had here but the best thing are the various stories of stuff that happened long before Roswell or shortly afterwards. I doubt this documentary will change whatever your opinion on the subject matter is but it's still a lot of fun.
