One of the zany aspects of The Day the Earth Stood Still was that the suave alien (Klaatu, played by Michael Rennie) was advocating some sort of world government by the UN along the lines of the World Federalists.

I thought "The Day the Earth Stood Still" was a modern story of Christ. An omnipotent and omniscient being (Klatu) comes in human form and in peace to warn man to practice the Golden Rule or else face eternal death by fire and brimstone. He is killed and his disciple (robot) who does his bidding brings him back and lays him in state (inside the ship) where he shortly thereafter comes back to life. He appears once again before man and then is lifted up into the heavens (blasts off).
That cinema class I took in school was not a waste of time, eh????
