The story of the 1961 abduction of Portsmouth NH's Betty & Barney Hill led to a national bestseller "Interrupted Journey." More than a decade later, the book was adapted into a made-for-TV film. These images from Universal Studios publicity department are reproduced crudely here from a 1975 copy of the National Enquirer.

Betty & Barney Hill

According to Betty Hill, the primary force behind the film version was actor James Earl Jones, who had read the book, and wanted to play the part of Barney Hill, a Portsmouth, NH postal worker. Betty Hill was played by Estelle Parsons.
