What is the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still about?
Widely considered one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time, Robert Wise’s “The Day the Earth Stood Still” was only a modest commercial success upon its release, but its reputation only grew larger with the passing of years. Based on a short story by Harry Bates, it tells the story of an alien arriving to Earth with an important message. A spaceship lands in Washington, D. C., and out of it comes a humanoid alien accompanied by a robot. The alien announces to the crowd that he has an important message to relay, but he is shot by one of the soldiers surrounding the ship. The alien robot disintegrates all weapons shooting a ray from its visor, and his commander halts him before he can do more damage. After the wounded alien heals, he informs the US president’s secretary that he wants to relay his urgent message to all the world leaders at once. When the secretary informs that it is highly unlikely, the alien, revealed to be called Klaatu, escapes and lives incognito among humans in an attempt to understand them. He becomes close with a widow and her son, and he contacts professor Barnhardt, a respected scientist whom he informs that other alien life forms are concerned about the Earth’s development of atomic power and expansion into space, as well as the human kind’s propensity to wage wars. As the government’s search for Klaatu intensifies, professor Barnhardt arranges an international assemble of scientists. After going through many perils, Klaatu addresses the scientists and lets them know that the Earth will be reduced to cinder if it tries to spread its violence into space.
