Now we're talking really classic in "The Day The Earth Stood Still," a movie that left us with images that are iconic to this day. What can possibly be said that hasn't be said before, and in who knows how many languges? Released on September 28, 1951, with a soundtrack scored by the incredible Bernard Herrmann, this film set a standard that has been rarely reached even to this day!
You might recognize Bernard from his musical credits of various sorts, running from composer to arranger, conductor, and music director on some little films with titles like "Citizen Kane" or "Fiend Without A Face." He was the orchestrator for Hitchcock's "Vertigo" and was the composer of the theme for 69 episodes of crack TV western "Have Gun, Will Travel" starring Richard Boone as Paladin, and some of the original "Twilight Zone" episodes, and that just scratches the surface

Three years later, Patricial Neal would go into space in "Stranger From Venus" a multi-faceted disaster!
You couldn't have lived through the 50's in the USA without knowing who Billy Gray was, as he played Bud in ever popular TV series "Father Knows Best!"
