In the caverns where the alien is talking with Dr. Martin, he uses an instrument to zap him at one point. Later, this instrument is used to contact the alien leader who is presumably either on their home planet or a spaceship. The instrument is a old model heat lamp. See more »
When Dr. Kruger leaves his office, he is clearly seen turning off its lights. A few minutes later, Dr. Martin opens Kruger's office door, and from the outside the office is still dark. But as soon as Martin enters and the scene switches to the inside of the office, the room is suddenly light again, though he hasn't switched on any light. (Dr. Martin turns on a light switch after entering the already-lit office, but this switch appears to be for the room containing the safe, and in any case no light comes on in the office itself when he does turn this switch on.)

Major Clift, MD:
Well, Dr. Martin seems to be indestructible except for his hallucination.
Those weren't hallucinations, Colonel. Under sodium amethol, a patient loses all control of his imagination.
Major Clift, MD:
Well, then, he shouldn't be able to fabricare these stories.
Major, you're not trying to tell us that everything he said was true?
Major Clift, MD:
Look, gentlemen, I can only give you the medical facts. As for the rest - you'll have to decide that for yourselves... Excuse me, please!

Did everyone miss the comparison to aliens reported today?
I didn't think it was that bad of a movie. It has more drama, and mystery and not as much horror than I expected. The story does move a little slow but it did keep my attention. The so called special effects can fairly be called poor. A lot of attention by reviewers has been given to the aliens big eyes. The aliens did look pretty strange and almost laughable but did everyone miss the comparison there is to the big eyes of the so called "grays" that are supposedly being seen by people today. How about the abductees that talk about being probed and operated on by aliens today? This movie did have aliens with bulging eyes doing an operation on a human in 1954. I have trouble calling this a good movie, but I cannot really call it a bad movie either. I think it's worth watching. Don't expect too much, and view it objectively. You might like it.
