Plowing straight ahead come what may

Just turned on the TV and TCM was on...missed the first part of The Day The Earth Stood Still...I came in where Gort was fixing to laser-eye Patrica Neal...a great cast and one of the better SiFi movies of all time Smile...one of my all time favorites! Now I'm sad I didn't know it was on (watching the space ship disappear into the blackness of space).

So many references...

My dad and I really loved this movie (on re-runs) and it got me started on Sci-fi in general.

Yes, great flick. Can't tell you how many times I've watched it but try not to miss any time it's broadcast.

Here's the soundtrack on YouTube. As impressive as the movie.

One of those Classics I try not to miss should I see it's on. SO well done.

Always try and watch it when it's on. They played "War of the World" (the original) after that and then "Forbidden Planet". All excellent movies!

If you watched the Q&A after watching the Day the Earth Stood Still there was an interesting tidbit. Apparently the producers or some people had issues with the alien rising from the dead.

If you liked the movie, the book: "Farewell to the Master," Harry Bates, 1940.
