! sort of wish I hadn't found this out. Ever since learning about the doubles, I always think about it when I see those shots. It "takes me out of the movie" for a moment. Sad

I don't see why it should. The use of doubles to stand in for principal actors in second-unit footage has been standard filmmaking practice for decades.

Yeah, I understand, Scot. Very Happy

All I'm saying is that the moment I see those brief scenes in Washington, I remember for a moment that I'm not really seeing Klaatu and Bobby (naturally) — and I'm not even sseing Michael Rennie and Billy Gray!

I'm seeing Double Number 1 and Double Number 2. Rolling Eyes

It's a just a quick thought that runs through my mind for a moment, sort of like the way we have to accept the fact that Gort carries two mannequins up the ramp instead of Klaatu and Helen.

And those "doubles" aren't even real people! Shocked

By the way, I love those two gifs you posted.
