60 years later, still works great. Way better than the horrible remake with Keanu.
This is one of those movies that show just how stupid people - humans really are.
It wasn't what I was expecting as far as the story goes (cuz they always advertize the robot coming out of the spaceship and little else), but it was excellent. Very, very convincing, especially for 1951. I think I may have a thing for Pamela Neal now. A lovely surprise all around.
