THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and WAR OF THE WORLDS

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

(1951, Robert Wise) “Klaatu barada niktu!” Reeling from an ill-advised fusillade after his saucer lands in the nation’s Capitol, alien Michael Rennie gives that famous order to his killer robot Gort. Mega-classic with eerie Bernard Herrmann theremin score. Approx. 92 min. DCP.
2:40, 6:10

 

“The quintessential alien visitation tale of its era, The Day the Earth Stood Still was mythically embedded in the minds of the pre-Spielberg generation that first saw it in childhood; viewed now, its influence on subsequent genre variations is as difficult to overstate as its number of ludicrous imitators.”
-  Bill Weber, Slant

“Superior sci-fi filled with dazzling, Oscar-winning special effects.”
– Leonard Maltin
