Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) – Watch Free!

The remake of THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL comes out on home video this week, and one of the nice features of the 3-disc Blu-ray set is that the third disc contains the 1951 original, widely regarded as one of the greatest science fiction flms ever made (a reputation in no way threatened by the 2008 version). Directed by Rober Wise and starring Michael Rennie as Klatuu, the alien who arrives on Earth to put a stop to mankind’s fliratation with nuclear weapons, the 1951 classic is more serious story-telling than spectacle – a clever, witty message picture that just happens to use an alien to deliver the message.
