The Man Who Fell To Earth (1976) Thomas Jerome Newton is a humanoid alien who comes to Earth to get water for his dying planet. He starts a high technology company to get the billions of dollars he needs to build a return spacecraft, and meets Mary-Lou, a girl who falls in love with him. He does not count on the greed and ruthlessness of business here on Earth, however.

Movie Quote(s):
  • [last lines] Waiter: I think perhaps Mr. Newton has had enough, don't you? Nathan Bryce: I think... perhaps... you're right.
  • Thomas Jerome Newton: We'd have probably done the same to you, if you'd come 'round our place.
  • Mary-Lou: What are they like, your children? Thomas Jerome Newton: They're like children. Exactly like children...
  • Mary-Lou: You know Tommy, you're a freak. I don't mean that unkindly. I like freaks. And that's why I like you.
  • Mary-Lou: I don't love you anymore. Thomas Jerome Newton: And I don't love you.
Movie Trivia:
  • Candy Clark, with a large black hat strategically pulled low over her face, played Thomas Jerome Newton in one scene while David Bowie was ill and unavailable to work the day it was shot.
  • Toward the end of the film, in the record store, Bryce walks past a display for David Bowie's "Young Americans" album.
  • The music that Oliver Farnsworth is listening to in the first scene we see him in and in one of the last is Gustav Holst's "The Planets".
  • Nicolas Roeg originally wanted to cast the 6'10" author Michael Crichton in the lead role of the alien.
  • Originally intended as a vehicle for Peter O'Toole.
