Alien Movie Project - EP 47 - The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
Holy mackerel! Holy Christmas! We watched The Day the Earth Stood Still, circa 1951. King Kong is not actually in this movie. But you will find sonic politics, robo-saviors, robot police and a suave, white male space messenger.Mentioned in this episode: Silver Screen Saucers - Robbie Graham Mapping Cultural Auracy: The Sonic Politics of The Day the Earth Stood Still (Social Semiotics: Volume 17, Number 1, March 2007) - Anne Cranny-Francis Revisiting a Science Fiction Classic: Interpreting The Day the Earth Stood Still for Contemporary Film Audiences (Journal of Popular Film and Television, 2008) The Atomic Scientist, Science Fiction Films, and Paranoia: The Day the Earth Stood Still, This Island Earth, and Killers from Space (Journal of American Culture, 1997) Female Scientists
