Nuclear war fears were commonplace in the 1950s, and this film, a cheap rip-off of "The Day The Earth Stood Still," feeds on that fear. A sphere from outer space comes down in California, prompting action from the military as well as from civilians. That night, the "Cosmic Man" (John Carradine) emerges from the sphere, bundled up with large sunglasses to hide his ghostly body. While military people and scientists argue about what to do, Cosmic Man professes to be a messenger of peace–a hard sell indeed.
