I mean if we're really going to get nitpicky about something not being original because some movie was made half a century ago for teenagers to neck to...
Hawks' movie was considerably more sophisticated than drive-in fare, kid.
Indeed. It is well-written and acted, fast-paced, drop-dead funny in some moments and all-round great fifties sci-fi. The only thing the 1982 movie has over it is a faithfulness to the original story. If that's all you care about, fine, but the lack of faithfulness doesn't mean The Thing From Another World is irrelevant to any conversation.
