Movie made in 1951 called "The Man from Planet X"
I just found it on Netflix and read the plotline.

Thought maybe some doomers would find it interesting.

PLOT:
"Planet X is on a collision course with Earth, and Prof. Elliott (Raymond Bond) is monitoring the action from his Scotland observatory. But when a spacecraft from the planet finally lands, the visitor inside falls into the clutches of Mears (William Schallert), an evil scientist. As the alien moves on to terrorize innocent Earthlings and turn them into zombies, reporter John (Robert Clarke) tries to get the real scoop."
Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Alien Sci-Fi, Cult Sci-Fi & Fantasy
This movie is: Suspenseful, Scary
Availability: Streaming and DVD


My jaw dropped when I read it. haha Especially the fact this was released in 1951.

there. asshole, where's your BS flag now?

IMDB's info
To study a rogue planet heading for a near-miss with Earth, Prof. Elliot sets up an observatory on the foggy moors of a remote Scottish island, with his pretty daughter and Dr. Mears, a former student with a shady past. Soon after arrival of reporter John Lawrence, a ship from Planet X just happens to land near the observatory. Is the visitor (who actually looks alien) benevolent? What are Mears' real motives for trying to communicate with it? Written by Rod Crawford <[email protected]>

A New York City newspaper reporter flies to a remote island off Scotland, on an invitation from a scientist who is a long-time friend, to cover the news of the approach to earth of a previously-unknown planet, which the scientist has called Planet X. While awaiting the calculated date of it closest approach to Earth, they discover a torpedo-shaped craft in which an agent of Planet X, peacefully disposed, has landed to make preparations for further landings of X-people when the planet reaches its closest proximity to Earth. The scientist's assistant crosses up the friendly visitor, who depends on a tank of X-atmosphere for survival. The Man from Planet X, using a mesmeric ray, captures the scientist, his daughter, the assistant and several townspeople. The reporter calls Scotland Yard. Sherrill Corwin, a distributor, gave this film a test-run at the San Francisco Paramount on March 9, 1951 (after screening it in Hollywood for the trade-paper reviewers on March 8) before buying the distribution rights from Aubrey Wisberg and Jack Pollexfen's Mid-Century Pictures production company.

Another interesting fact. The screenplay was written by Jack Pollexfen

He was in the airforce in world war 2 and wrote for the los angeles newspapers after the war ended. Inside info?? haha I'm kidding of course. But I'm sure some people might find that odd.

i'm on the fence with planet X. But when I read the plotline i found it amusing. especially the zombie part. Considering that would be similar to a memory loss from from EM energy. makes me wonder what came first? the theory or the movie?

This is contending for my favorite post ever!

interesting tidbit about he author... sounds like repti-mind tricks we being played on him to write it that way.

the whole EM thing doesn't fit the movie... although the CDC warning does...

Makes ya wonder who the evil scientist is... I have a good idea...

I'll give you a hint.... V

So ... I decided to see if it was released sept 11 1951 ...
is wasn't ... but... I did find something interesting:

GAO's new headquarters building was dedicated on September 11, 1951, President Harry S. Truman attended the ceremony and laid the cornerstone.

GAO- The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is the audit, evaluation, and investigative arm of the United States Congress.
