    60 years later, still works great. Way better than the horrible remake with Keanu. 8 years 10 months ago

    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. 3 years 7 months ago
