UFO Unidentified Flying Object True Story of Flying Saucers 1956 Video

UFO Signs: "The most amazing thing about this film is the fact that it was made with the full cooperation of the United States government, and every scrap of evidence it presents was made available to any and all scientific agency who wanted to examine it."

The Original Uncut 1956 Public Information Feature Film Produced With The Cooperation Of The United States Air Force In All Regions Released: 3 May 1956/ Note - Audio is "mono"

Enjoy this drama-documentary, based on the experiences of Al Chop, a reporter who served as press liaison for the Pentagon during its investigation of UFO's from 1947 to the early 1950s.

Miller, Soule, and Tremayne provide the voices for the narrated portions of the film. Although the movie contains only two brief film clips to serve as photographic evidence of UFO's, the producers build a good case based on the credibility of certain UFO witnesses (airline pilots, military personnel, radar operators, etc.).

On a more subtle level, director Winston Jones pulls off a clever trick; he begins the film as a pure documentary, but he gradually modifies this approach and focuses on reporter Al Chop's personal involvement in the UFO investigation. Chop slowly changes from UFO skeptic to UFO believer

The climax is a gripping reenactment of a true incident which occurred in 1950, when a group of UFO's cruised above Washington DC for several hours. The voice of Harry Morgan is heard over the radio as an Air Force pilot whose plane is literally surrounded by UFO's, during which Al Chop and a group of bewildered military men cluster around the radar scope, watching in wide-eyed wonder. Dramatically speaking, this scene is far superior to its counterpart in `Close Encounters of the Third Kind'. The most amazing thing about this film is the fact that it was made with the full cooperation of the United States government, and every scrap of evidence it presents was made available to any and all scientific agency who wanted to examine it.

FACTUAL ERRORS:
The April 7 1952 issue of Life Magazine had Marilyn Monroe on the cover, not Harry Truman. It was her first magazine cover. It was the U.F.O. issue though, with the blurb for it in the upper right corner, as shown in the film. The July 1, 1952 issue of Look magazine did not have Eisenhower on the cover as depicted, but a group of six pictures. One was of an Air Force fighter plane with the same blurb as the film's magazine: 'Flying Saucers - The Hunt Goes On'.

Original Tag Lines:

"You Will See Them With Your Own Eyes!"

"Actual color films of Unidentified Flying Objects that have been kept "Top Secret" until now!"

"It appears to be a metallic object of tremendous size...I'm trying to close in on it!" - and then he crashed!"

"FOR THE FIRST TIME! THE TRUTH ABOUT FLYING SAUCERS!" (original print ad - all caps) "EVERY SHOCKING WORD, EVERY FANTASTIC SCENE, EVERY FRIGHTENING MOMENT IS TRUE!" (original print ad - all caps) "Now! The truth about flying saucers!" "See it all as it actually happened ... and is still happening!" "The motion picture scoop of the century!"
