THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

US cinema of the 1950s was awash with sci-fi films carrying thinly veiled Cold War propaganda, but Robert Wise’s 1951 allegory preaches for a more amicable solution. A spaceship arrives carrying a softly spoken alien, who has an important message for humankind – they must learn to live peacefully and cooperatively, or face deadly consequences. Unlike many films from this era, this enduring classic still seems fresh, intelligent and entertaining, and its timeless warnings of the dangers of international conflict seem more relevant today than ever.
