Synopsis:
On the way home from missing a flight of the X-15 that he was supposed to cover for his newspaper, Tim O'Hara
sees a small spacecraft crash in a desolate area. The man he pulls out of the ship is a Martian professor who
has been studying the people of Earth for several hundred years. The Martian gives him details of the X-15 flight,
and when the story is printed, Tim is arrested, told he won't be released until he tells them who among the military
personnel revealed the secret information to him. Since no one would believe the truth, Tim is afraid he'll never
get out. But then the Martian appears out of thin air in his cell and suggests a plan that finally satisfies the
authorities. Tim offers room and board to his new-found Martian friend while he's repairing his spaceship. In return,
the martian, who among other things can read minds, becomes invisible and converses with animals, offers to help Tim
with his reporting. It looks like a wonderful partnership.
