The story of a small town's close encounter with a gentle alien, this is got to be the first movie in the 1950s' that didn't
have the alien a evil invader or horrorable monster.
THE MAN FROM PLANET X is about a gentle stranger that looks a little strange but means for no harm, he is curious of what
is to him the alien.
Here's the basic plot: To study a rogue planet heading for a near-miss with Earth, Prof. Elliot sets up an observatory
on the foggy moors of a remote Scottish island, with his pretty daughter and Dr. Mears, a former student with a shady past.
Soon after arrival of reporter John Lawrence, a ship from Planet X just happens to land near the observatory. Is the visitor
(who actually looks alien) benevolent? What are Mears' real motives for trying to communicate with it?
The man is a tad strange looking, but he is an alien. But he is cool and worth watching THE MAN FROM PLANET X over and
