Growing up in the early 50's with so many BAD science fiction films, this is one of the best of that era. Along with the classics; The Thing (1951), Day The Earth Stood Still (1951), and Them (1955), this would rank as the fourth best. Although somewhat dated as far as special effects, it was a landmark film for it's time. I remember going to my neighborhood theatre and watching this upon it's release. I read the book first and thought this would make a cool movie. I have waited like forever for this to FINALLY come out with Blu-ray or 4K restoration. Criterion has done a fantastic job with this. Absolutely loved the job they did. The picture looked like it was made today. Recommend this for early Sci-Fi buffs.
