The Thing From Another World. 1951.

Scientists and American Air Force officials based in a Arctic outpost fend off a alien organism.

At 69 years of age this original still holds up, the sense and dread of paranoia is built up well, the acting is always brilliant, the romance part seems a bit daft and tends to go on for a bit longer than necessary with Captain Henry, ok Margaret Sheridan was nice looking and may keep your blood warm. James Arness is the almost 7 foot alien that seems to be indestructible, at first you want to see the alien but then again you don't as his on screen appearance can be scary. Nicely made atmospheric Sci-Fi chiller.
