THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (1951) – 65th Anniversary

“Klaatu barada nikto”: One of the most famous phrases in all science fiction was first uttered in
The Day the Earth Stood Still, which cast its spell over audiences in September 1951, in the early years of the Cold War and Atomic Age. This tale of a humanoid alien visitor (Michael Rennie), with a message and ultimatum for the human race, was directed by Robert Wise from a screenplay by Edmund H. North, and featured a memorably eerie score by Bernard Herrmann. Also starring Patricia Neal, Hugh Marlowe, and our special guest, Billy Gray, the only survivor of the cast and crew. Gray, who is also well known for his role in the classic 1950s sitcom Father Knows Best, will appear at the 65th anniversary screening on opening night of the Anniversary Classics Sci Fi Weekend, April 15-17.
