Aliens come to Earth seeking scientists to help them in their war.
A print of this film was loaned to MGM, where another science fiction spectacle, Forbidden Planet (1956), was being prepared.
Dr. Cal Meacham:
I feel like a new toothbrush.
When Cal is going to take off from Washington DC, he flies in a T-33. During the interview, the plane's type and other data are clearly visible on the aircraft. The plane that takes off is not a T-33, it has a different type of nose.
When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts to secure a 'U' rating. All cuts were waived in 1987 when the film was granted a 'PG' certificate for home video.
