The Day The Earth Stood Still (PG)

Di­rec­tor: Robert Wise Star­ring: Michael Rennie

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Tv Classic -

NOT the Keanu Reeves re­make cur­rently un­der­whelm­ing cin­ema audiences; this is the orig­i­nal 1951 sci­ence-fic­tion clas­sic. There are overt Chris­tian par­al­lels here as hu­manoid alien Klaatu (Rennie) vis­its Earth with a warn­ing: mankind must cease its nu­clear am­bi­tions or be de­stroyed. Sure di­rec­tion from Wise and a great score by Bernard Her­mann. Ex­tras: two discs, com­men­tary, fea­turette, mak­ing-of, Movi­etone news, restora­tion com­par­i­son
