(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.
“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
(1953, Byron Haskin) Martians wreak havoc on a defenseless world in George Pal’s grand-scale updating of the H.G. Wells novel. Approx 85 min. 35mm.
