The Galaxy Being (1963)

Type :   Production countries :  


An engineer, named Maxwell, at the radio station KXKVI is illicitly using the station's electronics to do research in electromagnetism on the microwave background noise when he inadvertently gets an alien from the Andromeda Galaxy on his three-dimensional television screen. The alien's activities are also being conducted illicitly "because", as the alien tells Maxwell, "you are a danger to other galaxies." During their ensuing dialogue, the alien tells Maxwell that the electromagnetic field is, itself, an intelligent being and is none other than the physical manifestation of God. However, the conversation is interrupted, as Maxwell's wife drags him to a banquet in his honor. Despite warnings from the alien about applying excessive power to the station's transmission in his absence, an undisciplined disc jockey comes in and turns it up full blast. The power surge causes the microwave creature to be pulled through the communications apparatus and to appear on Earth. Although it has no desire to cause harm, its unearthly composition wreaks havoc by radiation, electrical blackouts, atmospheric disturbances, and overloaded-circuit explosions. While authorities quickly mobilize to attack the "hostile" alien, the engineer desperately tries to find a way to get it back to its home planet. The wife is accidentally shot by the trigger-happy police, the alien saves her life and then goes on to issue a dramatic warning in full view of the gathering crowd. (This episode aired 2 years before the accidental discovery of the cosmic microwave background by two PhD's using AT&T's equipment to do their research on the side).
