Great UFO Double

"UFOs It Has Begun:
Nice to see good prints of these films. They obviously held on to Rod Serling's footage from 1975, he looks like he is behind the 1970s version of the Doctor Who opening credits. Also good to see Jose Ferrer and Burgess Meredith taking part.
Great narration by cult favorite Anthony Eisley as well as some interesting interviews.
Of great historical significance

"The main reason that I bought this DVD is that the first documentary, "UFO's: It Has Begun", is basically the film version of Robert Emenegger's book "UFO's Past, Present, and Future." Originally the latter-named book was intended to be a film that was to include footage of the famous Holloman AFB landing and visitation by a member of the "large-nosed gray" alien species. For anyone unfamiliar with this Holloman landing, I recommend first reading Linda Moulton Howe's "An Alien Harvest" to get some background on the supposed landing and film. I, for one, believe that the landing did happen, making it an event of great importance. Although the date and exact location of the landing are disputed by Richard C. Doty (cf. Doty's statements in "Exempt From Disclosure" and in Howe's "An Alien Harvest"), there is plenty of evidence that the film of the landing does exist.
On this DVD, we are given an artistic reenactment of this landing near the end of the documentary. It follows almost word-for-word the text of Chapter 18 of Emenegger's book. AND, if I am not mistaken, it appears that a portion of the ACTUAL film footage is presented--namely, the scene inside a building when someone picks up a camera and runs to the windows. If you slow down this brief segment of film, you can observe a craft bobbing up and down over the runway outside!
Another reason to watch "UFO'S: It Has Begun" is that we are given an opportunity to see J. Allen Hynek, Jacques Vallee, Lonnie Zamora, and other important names in the history of UFO's, as themselves. We are also taken to the exact spots where famous landings or sightings occurred. So, this DVD definitely contains film footage of historic value.
The second documentary on this DVD, "UFO Syndrome," is also interesting from an historic viewpoint. However, this segment explores ideas that are less "scientific" and more "on the fringe." There are interesting theories presented, such as the "biological UFO" ideas of Trevor James Constable. But, in general, the visual images (continuously repeated photos and drawings) and speakers are much less compelling than those presented in "UFO's: It Has Begun." One of the interviewees in "UFO Syndrome" refers to a typical "Nordic" alien that he encountered as "Jesus," whereas he also describes this person as a man wearing a jump suit and tunic, with brown hair and a tanned complexion. Such "leaps of faith" are not needed in a documentary that claims to offer proof of UFO's."
The Must Own Video

"Although this video was created in 1979 it should be owned by every serious ufologist. It features J. Allen Hynek and Jacques Vallee, two of the primary movers and shakers in ufology, along with several of the directors of Project Blue Book. It has a nice segment on the early days of cattle mutilations, the Robertson panel, many early UFO sightings including films and much more. The information presented in this film is top notch."
