Men in Black are a phenomenon that existed WAY before the movie was ever even conceived.... Most prolific in the late 40's, early 50's, then less
as time went on... We are not "believing a movie"
More often sighted in the US and Britain, they typically show up soon after a UFO sighting, etc. and claim to be of an official agency, NSA, CIA,
Military Intelligence, Ministry of Defence, etc. and confiscate photos, and other evidence. Monotone voices, oriental looking eyes, and noiseless
cars, have contributed to the mythos...
The movie was simply building on some of these aspects, but was camp....
