The real story behind Close Encounters of the Third Kind, everyone remembers Close Encounters of the Third Kind a movie written by and directed by Steven Spielberg in 1977 starring, Richard Dreyfuss. What you may not know is that NASA? And the Air Force decided to not cooperate on the film. In fact, they were totally against the release of this movie NASA.
Reportedly sent Spielberg a 20-page letter telling him that releasing this movie was actually dangerous. Even though this was just a movie, the fact that the u.s. the government was trying to cover it up, which made a lot of people nervous, the military did everything. It could discourage anyone from claiming that UFOs were real. They usually ran a public campaign against anyone who seemed to have a credible.
Citing. If you saw a UFO, you must be crazy military pilots who saw UFOs with not report it because it would mean the end of their careers on January 7th, 1948 in Kentucky, a military base, saw a UFO from the control tower. They dispatched three P-51 Mustangs to investigate. One of the pilots was Thomas.
Tell he reported the craft at 15,000 feet and it was climbing fast. He followed the UFO up to 20,000 feet and it is assumed that Montel passed out and crashed the United States Air Force later said that Montello is actually chasing the planet. Venus then later updated the report to a Skyhook weather balloon. Just another example of how the
Terry dismisses an incident. You would think that a pilot would know the difference between a UFO and a planet or a weather balloon. I’m sure that the weather plan wasn’t traveling at 300 miles an hour.
The military likes to keep its Personnel under control. Now, there’s another person by the name of Donald Keyhole but he was an exception, he was in the military, he was a navigator and he was convinced that flying saucers were real. Kehoe was retired from the military and was writing books and articles, one of Kehoe’s Articles flying saucers are real, was published in January 1950.
Issue of the true magazine. Kehoe wrote the most popular article in the history of true magazine capitalizing on his success. Kehoe turned the article into a book. The flying saucers are real published in 1950. He sold more than 500,000 copies in his book, he claimed the Air Force, new flying saucers are real be covered up through.
Reports to avoid panic in the streets, Kehoe believes that the aliens did not seem hostile and that they have been surveilling the Earth for more than 200 years. Kehoe wrote that their observations suddenly increased and in 1947 following the series of bomb explosions and 1945 kilo, authored several books, about UFOs, flying saucers.
From outer space 1953 was the most impressive based on interviews and official reports by the Air Force. The book included a report from Albert em chop, the air force press secretary in the Pentagon Albert chop admitted that Keyhole was a responsible accurate reporter. He further expressed approval for Kehoe’s arguments in favor of continuing, his research.
Research in 1956, Kehoe co-founded a group called The National investigations committee on an aerial phenomenon known as ni C AP. This was a well-known group with several high-ranking military personnel and I see AP attracted, many people who were interested in UFOs, Kehoe was instrumental in increasing the awareness of the UFO.
I’m gonna kill went on to appear on several television shows and documentaries concerning UFOs Keyhole passed away in 1988 at the age of 91, another member of and I see AP was Roscoe Henry Hillenkoetter. He was the first director of the Central Intelligence Agency the CIA after his retirement from the United States Navy. He was on the
Board of Governors of the national investigations committee on aerial. Phenomena that is NI C. AP a colleague of Donald Kehoe Joseph Allen Hynek developed the close encounter, classification system. Hynek was an American astronomer a professor and a UFO investigator. He acted as a Scientific Advisor to UFO studies undertaken by the United States Air Force.
He was on Project sign project grunge, and finally, on Project Blue Book. But the government shutdown Project Blue Book, in 1969, and 1972, Hynek wrote the UFO experience a scientific inquiry. This is where Hynek came up with these close encounters. Classification, Close Encounters of the first kind of visual sightings of a nun identified flying object, Close Encounters of the
The second kind, a UFO event in which a physical effect is an alleged Close. Encounters of the Third Kind UFO encounters and which an entity is present. And this includes humanoids robots and humans who seem to be occupants or pilots of a UFO, Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind, a UFO event in which a human is abducted by a UFO or its occupants close.
Of the fifth kind, the UFO event involves direct communication between aliens and humans. Close Encounter of the six, kind death of a human or an animal associated with a UFO sighting. And finally Close Encounter of the seventh, kind the creation of a human-alien hybrid either by sexual reproduction or by artificial scientific methods. Spielberg hires
Hynek, it was the term. Close Encounters of the Third Kind that inspired. Director, Steven Spielberg Smash It Close, Encounters of the Third Kind released in late 1977 by. Then Hynek was a popular author and had the respect of the scientific Community. Spielberg reportedly, paid Hynek $1000 to use his phrase, Close Encounters of the Third Kind Plus $500.
Today as a technical advisor for the film while on the set, Hynek was talking to Spielberg about making a Hitchcock-type cameo in the movie and Spielberg. Love the idea of the found Hynek interacting with the aliens from the spaceship. So Hynek was actually in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, this movie started off with a very low budget but ended up spending a nineteen point four million
Dollars, but it went on to make more than 300 million dollars. Steve McQueen was spill Berg’s first choice for the lead role. However, Steve felt that he was not right for the role. He said he was unable to cry on cue, other choices, were Gene, Hackman, and Al Pacino, Dustin, Hoffman, and Jack Nicholson.
Richard Dreyfuss was finally, chosen in the rest is history. Columbia Pictures, experience financial difficulties and would have most likely dropped the film if they knew the cost was going to be so high. At first, Spielberg wanted to shoot the entire film on a soundstage but quickly realized that using your real locations would be better for the small extraterrestrials, and the final scenes were played by 50 local six-year-old.
Rules in Mobile Alabama, Spielberg actually bought a house at 1613 Carlisle Drive, East in Mobile, Alabama for $35,000 so he could use and do whatever they wanted to in the movie. This was the house where Roy went a little crazy and built the Devil’s Tower in the living room later. They sold that same house for $50,000 after cleaning it up. Of course, the fifteen thousand dollars profit went back.
Into the budget of the film Carrie, Guffey a three-year-old plays, a little boy, who is abducted by the alien, and the movie, he had never acted before. So spilled her figured out how to get a believable reaction to the aliens. First approaching the house, Spielberg slowly unwrapped a present for the young actor, just off camera to make him smile Guthrie. Even exclaims toys in the final take. Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed
