Trivia

Travis Walton's personal abduction story was revealed only two weeks after this television movie was broadcast. This led cognitive psychologist Susan Clancy to argue that this film had influenced Walton to present his own alleged abduction story, which eventually inspired the feature film, Fire in the Sky (1993).

Goofs

While under hypnosis, Barney recalls that he is storing a gun, a "32-caliber pistol" in the trunk of their car while traveling through Canada. Later, when we see him retrieve the gun, it is a revolver, not a pistol. See more »

My Comment on the UFO Incident
2 August 1999 | by starrizaSee all my reviews

I first vievved this movie several years ago on a Cable television channel. I vvas so pleased vvith the acting abilities of James Earl Jones and Estelle Parsons vvho play Betty and Barney Hill that I sought the movie to tape record it. I am still trying to catch it. The impression it made on me vvas a strong one. It vvas full of highly emotional drama. And it made me respect James Earl Jones all the more. Estelle Parson did a vvonderful job playing the vvife. Both characters vvere stretched and there vvas a lot of dialogue. Not too much action. But there really vvasn't need for action vvhen your glued to the screen vvaiting to hear vvhat the characters vvill say next of their tramatic experience. The dialogue and outpouring emotions vvas the action. This is a vvonderful movie. I'd really like to see it again.
