    Description

    Earth vs. the Flying Saucers "solidified electricity" alien spacesuit. (Columbia, 1956) In the film's plot, the mysterious alien race attacks Earth with plans of occupation. For protection while outside their craft, the aliens wear a protective suit discovered to be made of solidified electricity, granting them advanced auditory perception. This alien suit is crafted of sturdy fiberglass with rubberized glass cloth joints. The suit stands 68 in. tall and is mounted on a frame on base with casters. Exhibits expected wear and scuffing after 60 years; some of the joints have deteriorated which can be easily restored. Earth vs. the Flying Saucers has reached iconic status in the Sci-Fi genre for the Ray Harryhausen visual effects. Invariably, whenever "flying saucer" footage is shown in documentaries, they reference this film. Extremely rare, this is the only alien suit from this classic film we have ever encountered.
