In a memo issued a few days ago [early October, 1995] by Paul Davids, executive producer and co-writer of the Showtime television movie "Roswell," Davids says he is 100% certain that the so-called "Hong Kong alien" is a prop made for his film. The full text of his memo follows:
"I have now had a chance to download and examine the so-called Chinese alien photos that... were published in a Chinese newspaper as actually being the Roswell alien.
"I've examined three photos, all of a being lying on a sheet with the upright bars of a hospital bed behind it, one photo showing the head in a semi-profile, one showing the feet and hands and one showing an arm and a leg.
"[I wish to] inform everyone... that this "alien" is definitely one of four props that were built for our film. After production, it was given on loan to the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico. There it is on display for the public, in this precise hospital bed, where anyone can visit it and take pictures of it. We never intended it to become the object of this kind of hoax.
"Please note that I have compared the body in all its details to some of the dozens of photos I have of that particular movie prop. My determination is 100% correct with no possibility of error. Each detail of every wound matches. It does appear that someone has used pen or some computer program such as adobe photoshop to cover the genital area and to add a bit of false color.
"I am very disappointed to see that this is being presented to unsuspecting people, both in press and over the internet, as something actual, when it decidedly is not.
