The Earth Stood  Still back in 1951 -- a different world and yet very much the same.  Our Movie Moles, Frann Michel and Denise Morris tell us why the old movie has more to say about war and peace than the  version currently playing in theaters.   Here's another review comparing the new (2008) and the old versions. Here's the 1951 screenplay by Edmund North, the earlier short story "Farewell to the Master" by Harry Bates, and a treatment for a proposed sequel by Ray Bradbury.
