_Travis Walton's ETs Resemble Those In Betty/Barney Hill TV Movie:_
_Travis Walton_ claims he did not see "The UFO
Incident"--the NBC-TV novie version of the Betty/Barney
Hill abduction--when it aired on Oct. 20, 1975, barely two
weeks before he himself (allegedly) was abducted. But there
is a remarkable similarity in Walton's description of the ET
faces, as reported in his book, "The Walton Experience,"
which was published nearly a decade before the "new look" ET
emerged in Budd Hopkins' book "Intruders."
The eyes of the "new-look" ETs have _no lids_. But in
Walton's book, he said "_Their huge lids slid quicklY down
over the glassv bubbles of their eyes, then flipped open
again like the release of roll-up window shades._" (Emphasis
added.) The ETs in the NBC-TV movie had large _eyelids and
in one scene the lids moved exactly as Walton described_.
Walton said his ETs had "miniature _rounded noses_
[with] small _oval_ nostrils." (Emphasis added.) So did the
ETs shown in the NBC-TV movie. The typical "new-look" ET has
no defined nose, only two holes. Walton said the ears of his
ETs had "tiny crinkled lobes," as did the ETs in the NBC-TV
movie. The "new-look" ET has no discernible ear lobes.
Walton said his ETs had "_thin-lipped mouths_," as did those
in the NBC-TV movie. "New-look" ETs usually are described as
having _no_ mouth, or simply a thin slit _with no lips_.
