Astronomy in Old Films...
How it was meant to be :)
No doubt, the American Astronomer's Dream. This shot was snagged from the old Sci-Fi flick: "It Came From Outer Space." The movie takes place in Arizona and is based upon a Ray Bradbury story entitled "The Meteor." Looks like a mighty fine telescope to me. Starring Richard Carlson and Barbara Rush. They appear to be the perfect couple.
A spaceship from another world crashes in the Arizona desert and only an amateur stargazer and a schoolteacher suspect alien influence when the local townsfolk begin to act strangely.
But, then, we've all been there.
Another favorite oldie...
Invaders tells the story of young David MacLean (Jimmy Hunt), who witnesses the 4 a.m. landing of a flying saucer from his bedroom window.
