Day The Earth Stood Still, The: 2-Disc Special Edition

Widely acclaimed as one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time, The Day The Earth Stood Still offers riveting and thought-provoking sci-fi filmmaking at its very best! Now this classic story of hope and peace can be experienced to its fullest in this special edition DVD complete with 2 audio commentaries, 7 all-new featurettes and more!

A spaceship lands in Washington, D.C., capturing the attention of the world. But the alien emissary (Michael Rennie) it brings refuses to reveal his mission to any single government, leaving the military, the politicians, and millions of ordinary people to wait in fear. Soon their distrust turns to calls for violence. But one young woman and her son (Patricia Neal, Billy Gray) befriend him... and soon realize that they may be all that stands between the human race and total destruction.
