The Day The Earth Stood Still...The First Time

We all know about the day the earth stood still when Gort descended from the spaceship and scared the living daylights out of people. But no one remembers that an alien and his spaceship had landed many years before. The creature that emerged was made of wood as the alien civilization had yet to develop metals. And, yes, the earth stood still. Upon leaving, the alien zapped earth creatures with a "forgetting ray."  Recently evidence was found of the first contact.

Artist's model belongs to my son, Will. The woman pre-Gort is carrying is a Dr. Martha Jones action figure from the BBC series Doctor Who. I hacked a real poster from the original movie.
