Originally the film was released with a running time of 112 minutes but several notable critics denounced the slow pacing so, in 1968, director Arch Oboler cut the movie to 91 minutes. Unfortunately, the edits were made directly to the original camera negative and the footage was discarded. No prints of the 112 minute version are known to exist. See more »
About ten years later, this film was re-released in a edited and re-titled version. Approximately two reels of footage was removed and it was re-titled "Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth." In the early 1980s, this edited and re-titled version was released again during the brief 3-D revival of that period. See more »
Yes this is a awful movie however I was in it: This was my first movie I play(name not on credits) the little girl walking around and riding on the carnival ride in a complete trance. My uncle was a producer and assisted Arch Obler on this film. I was only 7 years old but what memories. Gilligans Island,Big Valley ,Its about Time were all being filmed and I hung out with all of the actors. Michael Cole and Debra Wally were in the Bubble and were great to me. I will never forget that time. I continued on until into my 20 in the Hollywood scene and then decided to move on. I now own a successful Ice Sculpting and Event Decor company on the West Coast. I was so surprised to see this on the amazon.com I had to laugh. I even went to the opening it was at a theatre in Hollywood i got to walk down the red carpet and could barely write my name when another child asked if i was in the movie and wanted my autograph I only new how to print not write.
