Only one robot costume was constructed for this film and it was used for all robot scenes. This is why you never see more than one member of the "robot army" in a shot. See more »
Near the beginning when Nora is wandering alone on the streets, in the foreground is a street sign warning of a 19.5% grade. At the bottom of of the sign is the ID: LA PD. Since this film was made in Los Angeles, that is reasonable. See more »
Although dated, this science fiction thriller asks the question, "Is it possible for outer space aliens to invade our earth?" The script was well written and the acting was just as good. Richard Denning and Kathleen Crowley have been seen in other top notch "B" 50'S sci-fi and horror films. But this is one of the best.
