Visible crew/equipment: Opening credits (also a few minutes in) has a fiery spaceship crashing into the camera for this was a 3D movie. What's interesting is that a mirror can be seen on the left portion of the screen just before the collision. This was apparent at the theatres and on the VHS tape release. For some reason, the DVD release has it cropped out and now the spaceship is off-centered at the beginning (fortunately the bonus material still shows it). (00:00:20 - 00:03:50)

Visible crew/equipment: The alien takes a stroll through the Arizona desert after crashing. The animals are frightened and run away with the exception of the owl. The bird has a string tied to its left leg and someone off camera yanks it, and the bird screeches and does a complete flip while flapping its wings. It looks hilarious - poor owl. (00:07:15)

Visible crew/equipment: A lizard has a string on its right leg. It looks like it was used to restrain the lizard until the director was ready for it to move. (00:28:30)

Visible crew/equipment: Richard Carlson decides to take a closer look at the crater. While he pauses on the floor of the crater, you can see crisscrossing shadows on his jacket from the film equipment. (00:09:55)

Trivia

According to the bonus material on the DVD, the monster was used as an after thought. The director and writer thought the audience's imagination would suffice, but the higher-ups at Universal felt otherwise.
