I'm looking for the title of a science fiction B movie which I saw very long ago for which I have only a fragmentary memory: a lab worker is covering a bell-jar like contrivance which is encaging two small, glowing and bobbing spheres of some un-nameable plasma (creatures...?!). She leaves the darkened room, and the guys working the baby spot - I mean, they escape, wending their eerie way around the eerily lit lab....and the memory ends. What film is it?

Maybe checking out this site will help you job your memory. They also have a forum so you could probably ask your question there with better results.

Are you sure it was a film and not this episode of 80's-era Star Trek?

Thank you for the link. I haven't tried a search at the site yet, but it looks like it's going to help.

No, it wasn't this one.

It was definitely a movie - from the late fifties - but the scene on the thumbnail on amazon is almost identical to the scene in question; the writer may have seen the same story.
