One must wonder from the beginning why the Air Force would have any interest in a Hollywood movie on UFO's anyway. (Images of "Plan 9 from Outer
Space" and other ridiculous 50's era sci-fi movies come to mind).
But once I opened the PDF file and began reading it became obvious what must have piqued the Air Force's interest. The advertisments for the movie
claim "The truth about flying saucers", "You will see them with your own eyes" and the clincher, "Actual color film of the Unidentified Flying
Objects that have been kept Top Secret until now!"
Also, no doubt of interest to the Air Force was the claim by the movie producers that Douglas Aviation a defense contractor at the time, had
apparently written a report on UFO's that was covered in the movie "Unidentified Flying Objects".
One additional claim by the film was that radar screen images shown were top secret images depicting UFO's over Washington, but it was determined
that the images and claim were a total fabrication by the movie makers.
All of this prompted the Air Force's final analysis that the movie was overly dramatic, an amateurish attempt at a Hollywood movie production which
overtly tries to portray the entire UFO phenomenon as a menacing, super intelligent, other worldly alien presence.
Such subjective expressions of viewpoint really have no place in a claimed factual documentary; making the movie more of a sensational work of fiction
rather than an expose' of the UFO phenomenon.
After reading the PDF - with a grin on my face I am again reminded of "Plan 9 from Outer Space" with it's flying saucers hanging on visible strings
as if it were a comedy instead of a serious attempt at Sci-Fi entertainment.
