The UFO Incident (Interrupted Journey) is a 1975 television film starring James Earl Jones and Estelle Parsons based on the alleged 1961 alien abduction of Barney and Betty Hill.


The plot of the film is based on the audio recordings of the testimonials by the interracial couple under hypnosis of what happened with them on 19-21 September 1961.

What they allegedly experienced is replayed and reenacted on film.
