here are parallels between Klaatu and Jesus Christ. Klaatu comes from another world and chooses the name of Mr. Carpenter (the occupation of Jesus Christ). He came to warn about the destruction Earth is going to face if they don't believe him and his words. Jesus Christ said to the people that they will face destruction if they don't believe in him and in his words. Like Jesus prophesying about the destruction of Jerusalem, Klaatu prophesies that Earth may have to face destruction like leveling New York City or sinking the Rock of Gibraltar. Both Jesus Christ and Klaatu die and later come back to life. Like Klaatu's flying saucer seen by people in the film, People in Jerusalem and in Judea saw flying chariots and soldiers in the sky right before the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. This was recorded by Hebrew Historian Josephus, Roman Historian Tacitus, Eusebius, Document "Pseudo Hegesippus", and Jewish History Document "Sepher Yosippon".
The Army refused to co-operate after reading the script. The National Guard had no such qualms and gladly offered their co-operation.

It may be a good idea to see if those points were being made prior to the movie. Or did they enter the "lore" because of the movie?

Well we gotta figure that the first mass attention was in 47 ish so four years later out comes this movie. Not a schlock sifi movie but a real honest to goodness Hollywood type production. And the message. That humans needed a superior power to control it, that being the galactic police force of which Gort was only one. Join the intergalactic family.
Could be conditioning, but could just be making a fast buck on a popular fad.
