A spacecraft lands in Washington D.C. and an alien emerges, with a menacing robot whose destructive powers defy imagination. So begins the science-fiction thriller, The Day The Earth Stood Still, a classic 50's movie that would go on to inspire alien-invasion films for decades to come. Rebuffed in his efforts to warn the Earth's leaders of it's impending doom, the alien, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), takes to the streets. Klaatu's plea for peace is embraced by a pretty, young woman (Patricia Neal) and an eminent scientist (Sam Jaffe), but the rest of humanity reacts with mistrust, fear and violence. With time running out, Klaatu is forced to demonstrate his awesome powers, teaching all of mankind a lesson for the ages. "Klaatu barada nikto!" Remade in 2008.
