Overlords of the UFO (1976) (part 5 of 14)
And as if all that weren’t bad enough, we abruptly cut to the hairy, porcine visage of Stanton Friedman, UFO Researcher. Check his badge! He’s a UFO Researcher! Bucking the common stereotypes, Stanton is wearing ugly spectacles and his hair is shooting off wildly in a myriad of different directions. Well, okay, I guess he’s just a typical UFO freak. But possibly he cleans up well. When we first join him, he’s being interviewed, and he’s actually suggesting that earth is the “honeymoon capital of this corner of the galaxy”, but I’m almost positive he’s just joking around. Almost.
The host takes care to remind us that Stanton is the man who gave the seminar “Flying Saucers are Real” to the Air Force Academy, in case you’ve mistaken him for a transient, which is entirely possible. But the line is “cleverly” crafted to make it sound like the Air Force wanted its cadets to know that flying saucers are real. Uh-huh, sure. The host refers to him as a “UFO analyst, with a high level of scientific training,” who has a degree in nuclear physics, blah blah blah. And now? Bachelor #2, introduce yourself.
