We Are Not Alone

Synopsis: Warners' publicity releases, intended for newspapers,on this film state that Paul Muni worked closely with James Hilton on the adaptation of Hilton's book for this film. Given that most publicity releases of the time (and also now) are best when taken with several grains of salt, this may or may not be true: Dr. David Newcome lives with his wife Jessica and son Gerald in the small English town of Calderbury. Jessica, conventional and somewhat stupid, is unable to understand the sensitive little boy and her stern, unsympathetic discipline aggravates Gerald's nervousness. The doctor is called to care for Leni, an Austrian dancer stranded in England, who has tried to commit suicide, and he decides she is just the person to hire as a governess for Gerald based on, evidently, no logic at all but it does move the plot.

Go on, move!

Lady, this isn't fair.

Is everything okay?

You aren't really hurt, right?

Get in your car

and go home, okay?

Lady, don't make trouble.

I don't have a car

and I don't have a home, either.

You don't have a home?


What do you mean?

My mother died five months ago.

Cancer of the pancreas.

I'm sorry.

A month later... boom.

My father died.

The exact same disease.

Symmetrical death.

- Wow.

Do you have any...

family, friends, relatives...

anyone who can help you?


- No.

Now do you see why I'm giving you

such a hard time, Edward?


It's just...

All right, I'll tell you

what we'll do.

You're going to leave the mall now...

and come back in 15 minutes

through Gate 5.


The cameras there

are being repaired.

"...There are those who are observing

us from above.

Who have always been watching us

Dear reader...

We are not alone.

From the dawn of history

the human race has been graced

with visitations of more

advanced civilizations.

The great stone statues

of Easter Island

are a message they left behind.

Here is where you must wait.

On the designated date we will return

in order to give you a chance

to begin anew.


I'm asking you, please step back

behind the safety rail!

The safety rail was installed here

for the customer's safety.

Is it because of your parents?

The symmetrical cancer...

And all that?

Edward? Is that you?


What's up?

Couldn't be better.

I know that feeling!

Maybe it doesn't show now, but

I've also been through times when...

I didn't have

anyone to talk to.

No one to take care of me.

I don't need

taking care of, okay?

Okay, okay.

Do you mind if we say goodbye now?

- Yes! I mind very much!

I'm not leaving here until

you come down.

Do you really want to save me,
