Amateur astronomer John Putnam (Richard Carlson) and his fiancee Ellen Fields (Barbara Rush) are stargazing in the desert when a spaceship bursts from the sky and crashes to the ground. Just before a landslide buries the ship, a mysterious creature emerges and disappears into the darkness. Of course, when he tells his story to the sheriff (Charles Drake), John is branded a crackpot; but before long, strange things begin to happen, and the tide of disbelief turns… Based on a story by acclaimed writer Ray Bradbury, It Came From Outer Space is a science fiction classic that is as thought-provoking and tantalizing today as it was when it first "landed" on the sliver screen.

"John, are they really gone?" "Yes, for now, the time wasn't right for us to meet. But there will be other nights, other stars for us to watch. They'll be back."
Universal's first polarized 3D black-and-white feature film is loving restored via digital Blu ray to the way it looked and sounded in theaters more than 60 years ago. The polarized 3D effect is amazing and not overly done like today on so many modern 3D CGI effects films. This alone makes this Blu ray a "Must Buy" for any home film library. "It Came from Outer Space" has also been restored with its original three-track *stereo* soundtrack, a breakthrough theater sound technology of that film era. A "flat" version of the film, in mono sound, is also included, as are both 3D and flat versions of its theatrical movie trailers. Also included is a documentary on Universal's science fiction films of that era and a voice-over commentary that plays over the film on a separate track.
Her best movie is,"When Worlds Collide" you can see her in color in this movie.
Some friendly but really creepy looking aliens cause trouble out in the desert.
I found the streaming video to be fuzzy with poor audio. The Blu-ray is awesome just like being in a movie theater.
Richard Carlson was my Hero, in this one and The Magnetic Monster. And lovely Barbara Rush, what can I say?--that my preteen body did not already flag when I first saw her in this sci-fi Classic? (She pointed that high-power laser at me near the end of the film, and I pointed back.) I am so glad ICFOS has been resurrected and the rumor that one of the two 3D sides was lost IS NOT TRUE! 3D movies NOW are often so full of CGI Special Effects, rammed into your eyes at top speed, that you cannot follow the plot. I hear many friends say 3D sucks, gives them a headache.
Not so in the 1950's. Carlson, in the movie THE MAZE, was creepy, and when his relative, a guy in a rubber frog suit, jumped out from behind a hedge, people in the audience dropped their popcorns and drinks and screamed bloody murder. Now reviewers troll that same flick, now shown in flat 2D. I know it takes a lot of time and money to resurrect old movies, so it's no wonder that many are neglected. This one is worth it! I met Ray Bradbury twice many years ago, and it is obvious HE wrote the story and had his treatment merely retyped. Some of the beautiful poetry remains in the dialogue.
I can't stress enough how well done this restoration is, and at the current street price of under $9 is perhaps THE BEST DEAL
in vintage sci fi movies ever!
The movie is well paced, beautifully shot, never over bearing, but a slow burn that climaxes wonderfully. A MUST SEE!
