One of the finest, purest Science Fiction films of all time! It is timeless in capturing Mankind’s ignorance when faced with the unknown, and its thought-provoking concept employs many religious parallels. Screenwriter Edmund H. North(PATTON) based his work on the short story Farewell to the Master by Harry Bates. Bernard Herrmann’s haunting score is brilliant and the direction by Robert Wise (WEST SIDE STORY, THE SOUND OF MUSIC) moves at a rapid-fire pace. An all-time great, which becomes more relevant with each passing decade! The film that set the course for my life-long love of Cinema. “KLAATU BARADA NIKTO!” Starring: Michael Rennie, Patricia Neal, Billy Gray, Sam Jaffe.
