Subject: Who Knew?

Hi list,

I thought I'd share a little known fact with you movie buffs out
there. Before Steven Spielberg began work on E.T., he and a
small team of artists were working on a project called "Night
Skies", a movie about decidedly unfriendly aliens visiting
earth. Effects people had even produced working alien creatures,
with realistic aspects such as subdermal muscle movements, skin
texture and facial features.

Unfortunately, for reasons unknown, the project was suddenly
abandoned for the cuter E.T., and the rest is history.

The only place I've ever seen reference to this information was
in a movie industry magazine called Cineffex. Perhaps some
person with connections in the movie business (I  won't mention
you, Roger) could do a little digging and come up with some more
