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.

The film tells the story of the couple in flashbacks, through hypnosis and psychiatric consultations of the married life of the couple, both before and after the alleged encounter with a UFO and abduction by aliens.[1]

According to the Huffington Post, a more developed and detailed film depicting the events of the Hill couples alleged encounter and abduction is a possible project that can give a better insight to the incident.[2]
