Description by OLDIES.com:
His hypnotic eyes see all! An Atomic Age thriller, The Cosmic Man is about a strange spherical spaceship that arrives on Earth, bringing with it a benevolent alien being from beyond the stars--a being that exists in the negative world of shadows. Is he here to destroy the world or bring it peace? Humanity stands in the balance. A powerful and engaging sci-fi saga, inspired by The Day the Earth Stood Still. Starring legendary horror star John Carradine as the dark, mysterious Cosmic Man, this is one of the great fifties drive-in theater classics that thrilled teenagers of the Ozzie and Harriet generations.
John Carradine stars in this atomic age classic as the mysterious Cosmic Man, a benevolent alien whose motives for visiting Earth are unclear. Setting down on Earth in a spherical UFO, Cosmic Man immediately becomes a military target even though scientists are sure destroying him could have disastrous consequences. A classic of 1950s B science fiction, COSMIC MAN is an entertaining parable about the dangers of nuclear energy that reflects some of America's feelings toward the impending nuclear age.
When an alien lands on planet Earth, the military immediately wants to destroy the bizarre creature, whose powers are unknown and possibly dangerous. However, scientists fight for its life, arguing that it may provide important information about outer space.
