Good, Bad, and Ugly
Reader reaction to Reuters news
As in the original “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” humans react with panic and terror when an alien craft lands in New York and an alien Klaatu (Reeves), backed up by the towering, indestructible robotic figure of Gort, emerges to warn people and world leaders that the planet is facing a crisis.
Your site erroneously lists Mr. Reeves as Canadian-born. In fact, he was born in Beirut, Lebanon. He said it publicly on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno.
The original film is set in Washington DC. No SF fans at Reuters?
Thanks. We corrected both points: GBU Editor.
