The Day The Earth Stood Still
Year: 1951 Cast: Michael Rennie, Patricia Neal, Hugh Marlowe, ... Directed By: Robert Wise A gentle alien lands on Earth to deliver a message of peace and a warning against experimenting with nuclear power. He finds his views echoed by a majority of the population, but not the ones who are in control. In this account Rennie is the visitor backed by the mighty robot Gort. One of the greatest science fiction films of all time.
1951 marked the year that two of the best sci-fi movies ever were made. The first one, "The Day the Earth Stood Still" was a warning to us that we should search for peaceful coexistence with our neighbors. Made just six years after World War II ended and the Cold War was beginning, it warned what could happen to us if we continued with our warlike behavior.
The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 1951) I love director Sam Rami (Evil Dead etc.) and how he borrowed the words from Patricia Neal's mouth to open the book of the dead in his movie. Movie lover directing movies. AFS
