THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL ORIGINAL ARTWORK

Updated: June 01, 2012

Pre-production:

The set was designed by Thomas Little and Claude Carpenter. They collaborated with the noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright for the design of the spacecraft. Paul Laffoley has suggested that the futuristic interior was inspired by Wright's Johnson Wax Headquarters, completed in 1936. Laffoley quotes Wright and his attempt in designing the exterior: "... to imitate an experimental substance that I have heard about which acts like living tissue. If cut, the rift would appear to heal like a wound, leaving a continuous surface with no scar.

Shown here are early drawings of Michael Rennie's spacesuit, and a studio drawing blueprint of his flying saucer!
