Nancy Archer (Allison Hayes) had something funny happen to her on the way home from the insane asylum. She saw a UFO. Only trouble is no one will believe her. Go figure.
Her husband couldn't be happier though. If Nancy is still insane than he can continue his affair with the curvy Honey Parker (Yvette Vickers). Her constant ramblings give him all the ammo he needs to have her shipped right back to the Nut House.
Nancy knows what she saw and is convinced that she is no longer the crazy person she once was so she flees her adulterous husband and returns to the dessert to find evidence to prove her story. She finds the UFO but its alien pilot uses a strange ray on her and she soon grows to an enormous size.
If The Day The Earth Stood Still was intended to showcase mankind's preconceived idea that all things that are not immediately understood are inherently evil then Twenty Million Miles to Earth was destined to drive the point home. Very rarely has there been a more tragic figure portrayed on film as the Ymir. (Named for the first of the giants in Norse mythology) The poor creature is kidnapped from its native planet of Venus, attacked by a dog, attacked by a farmer with a pitchfork, tortured with electricity and finally is sent plummeting to its death by a barrage of bazooka fire. Welcome to Earth.
After the success of Gojira Toho studios would make a second feature film starring their new world famous monster entitled Godzilla Raids Again. This time the mighty Godzilla would be pitted against another titanic creature Anguirus whose origin is never explained in the film. This as most fans know would be the first of several Godzilla battle films.
