The Day The Earth Stood Still

January 15, 2011 by Post Team 

The Day The Earth Stood Still, AMC on Friday night will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the sci-fi The Day the Earth Stood by broadcasting in high definition for the first time.

This is according to an article by The film, which will air at 8 pm on Friday (January 14) AND, focuses on a spaceship that lands on the Washington DC Mall to the height of the Cold War. While the aliens came in peace, the Terrans are confused how to react to the landing and two crew of the ship.

Many film critics have said the film was an allegory of the conflict era of the 1950s between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.

British actor Michael Rennie head the cast as the alien-sounding curiously British who invaded Washington, DC But the film is also filled with priceless but hammy performances, Billy Gray (who later starred as the son of Father Knows Best), an almost unrecognizable young Patricia Neal, Sam Jaffe and Frances Bavier! (Better known as Aunt Bee from The Andy Griffith Show.)

AMC says it will broadcast The Day the Earth Stood Still with limited commercial interruptions.
