|First contact: The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)|
Evidence mounts that iconic 1951 movie was CIA UFO acclimation project
- Darryl Zanuck – the movie mogul who oversaw the film’s production – was a CIA asset.
- Zanuck was considered a “friend” of the US government who could be “relied upon” to subtly “insert ideas” into his productions.
- Zanuck helped shape the script for The Day the Earth Stood Still and wanted audiences to “completely accept” that open ET contact could happen “in the not too distant future.”
