Prepare to blast off from planet Earth in one of the most popular classic science fiction films of all time! Atomic scientist Dr. Meacham is chosen, along with the gorgeous Dr. Adams, by the inhabitants of the planet Metaluna to do research that will help save their dying planet. However an evil scheme is uncovered by the suspecting Dr. Meacham when he discovers the Metalunan's plan to take over Earth.
As he and Dr. Adams make their escape by flying away in a Stinson 108, their aircraft is drawn up by a bright beam into a flying saucer. Will interstellar negotiation save the day or will the scientists be forced to take part in a treacherous battle to the death? The film was praised by critics for its special effects, well-written script and eye-popping color.

A U.S. Navy jet piloted by Captain Dale Heath runs into trouble as soon as it is in the air. With both his radio and navigation system disabled, Heath has no way of knowing that he is on a collision course with a Douglas DC-7 commercial airliner full of passengers. A tense air traffic controller knows the sky is full of danger as the two aircraft hurtle toward disaster. There are only moments for the controller to find some way to communicate with the jet, and even less time for the pilots to react to the emergency. Film rights to the novel The Crowded Sky - written by a former US Navy flyer - were sold before it was even published.
