The Man From Planet X (1951)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Man From Planet X (1951) A New york City newspaper reporter flies to a remote island off Scotland, on an invitation from a scientist who is a long-time friend, to cover the news of the approach to earth of a previously-unknown planet, which the scientist has called Planet X. While awaiting the calculated date of it closest approach to Earth, they discover a torpedo-shaped craft in which an agent of Planet X, peacefully disposed, has landed to make preparations for further landings of X-people when the planet reaches its closest proximity to Earth. The scientist's assistant crosses up the friendly visitor, who depends on a tank of X-atmosphere for survival. The Man from Planet X, using a mesmeric ray, captures the scientist, his daughter, the assistant and several townspeople. The reporter calls Scotland yard. Sherrill Corwin, a distributor, gave this film a test-run at the San Francisco Paramount on March 9, 1951 (after screening it in Hollywood for the trade-paper reviewers on March 8) before buying the distribution rights from Aubrey Wisberg and Jack Pollexfen's Mid-Century Pictures production company.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Professor Elliot: Your statement has the tinge of fantasy.
  • Professor Elliot: Well, the only difference between water and space is a matter of density.
  • Enid Elliot: When I got close to it, it looked like a giant glass ball girdled with something like a steel belt. Three of them, I think. When I got close enough to look in - there it was. Professor Elliot: It? What? Enid Elliot: That face! Right on the other side of the glass looking right into mine! I was terrified! Professor Elliot: A face? A human face? Enid Elliot: A ghastly caricature like something distorted by pressure. I can't think how else to describe it - a horrible, grotesque face looking right into my eyes!
  • Dr. Mears: [to the Man from Planet X] [laughs] Dr. Mears: To think - a fantastic gnome like you had to hurdle out of space to put this power in my hands. Well, now that we've made contact, I'm gonna tear out every secret you've got!
  • John Lawrence: What'd you do to him back there in the dungeon? Dr. Mears: Do to him? Why I didn't do anything. Nothing at all. John Lawrence: He showed a definite disposition for friendliness when I left. Dr. Mears: Well how can you talk of him as if her were a human being? How do we know what thought processes run through his head? How can we even assume that he thinks like we do? How can you anticipate what a fantastic organism like that might do or might no do? John Lawrence: Alright! Alright!
Movie Trivia:
