Movie review: It Came from Outer Space (1953)

Have I mentioned that one of my favorite channels is Turner Classic Movies (TCM)?  I am sure I have.  On Saturday nights they run classic noir films and 50s and 60s sci-fi films.  I recorded this one on the DVR for later viewing.  The main reason I recorded it is that the screen play is based on a Ray Bradbury short story.  Unlike a lot of 50s sci-fi, the aliens aren’t a stand in for the commies.  Rather, the are portrayed as physically hideous creatures that are peaceful and arrived by accident and just want to repair their ship and leave.  Like many of these aliens crash to earth films, the action takes place in the rural southwest. (Sand Rock, AZ)  I wonder if many of these films were set in the southwest due to the Roswell incident.

This is one of the first films staring the lovely Barbara Rush, and if you pay attention, you”ll see one of the survivors of a later boat accident that led to a stranded passengers and crew.  While not high art, and not even the best of its era, it is an enjoyable film. Two and a half out of five stars.

I would never have though of foxes migrating between Norway and Canada.  Amazing.

Did pre-humans originate out of Europe?  An interesting article, even if the title may be a bit overblown.

If this pans out, it will change the world as we know it.  I hope it  doesn’t turn out to be another “cold fusion”.

This is a great idea, if you ask me.  I’ll be getting one for my little one.
