UFOs & Hollywood

Date: 12-17-08
Host: George Noory
Guests: Linda Moulton Howe, Dennis Swift

Investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe discussed unusual aerial craft in Ohio and Texas, and the CIA's connection to how UFOs are portrayed in Hollywood films. She interviewed two witnesses, trucker Tim Costock and a security guard named Sarah who both saw, on the same night in Empire, Ohio, a triangular shaped craft and a glowing "pod" or "cocoon"-like object. They described the triangular craft as dark or charcoal in color and as having a rough texture or crystalline structure.

Linda also interviewed a Stephenville, Texas police officer "Greg" who told of witnessing a large rectangular black object about 600-ft in diameter on the night of January 8, 2008-- the same night as other sightings in Stephenville. The wingtip-shaped craft was completely stationary, and he described its surface in similar terms as the Empire, Ohio witnesses.

In Linda's interview of Robbie Graham, a U.K. media lecturer, they discussed the role the CIA may have played in the original 1951 film, The Day the Earth Stood Still. "It might have been some kind of a test. It might have been partly an acclimatization, maybe misinformation-- ┬Žjust to see peoples' reactions to these things, or to perhaps seed certain types of perceptions in the public," he said. The screenwriter for the film, Edmund H. North had earlier made propaganda films for the U.S. Army, he noted.
