5.0 out of 5 stars Much superior to other sci-fi of the era, 7 May 2006
This review is from: It Came from Outer Space [DVD] (DVD)
I originally saw this movie "It Came from Outer Space" aka "Strangers from Outer Space" on a 14" black and whit TV as a child. And believe me I was seeing eyes all over the place for several nights.

John Putnam (Richard Carlson of "Creature from the Black Lagoon" fame) an amateur astronomer was watching the desert sky with his girl, Ellen Fields (Barbara Rush) a local school teacher, when a strange meteor came down near buy. John, first to reach it swore he saw a door shut. We see it and believe him. However no one else does. What will happen next? Watch and find out.

You can spot a Jack Arnold film by the pacing and initial dialog. This one gave me nightmares as a kid. However now when I watch this film now, I can enjoy the DOWN TO EARTH portrayal of misplaced aliens. You get the alien view from its innards. I was disappointed to find that this is not a 3-D film. I also have the children's book of this with still shots. Your next film to view is "OUT THERE" (1995) an HBO film staring Bill Campbell and Wendy Schaal. It shows real alien interaction with people and accordions.

There is always hope that a 3D version has survived and will surface in the form of a DVD.

Just thought I would comment on this good review, an 8mm Colour abridged edition in
3D complete with the Red and Green Glasses is still available and may turn up on AMAZON. This of course is Super 8MM sound Cine film and I feel sure that if you have difficulty finding out more then companies like DERANN AV in Dudley may be able to help.

I remember seeing this in 3D at the Birmingham Arts Lab Cinema in the late 70s, and it was great fun.
