I think it could be argued that The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951) is another classic SF film that does not feature a villain. By some interpretations, we - the human race, are the villain of the feature (in a somewhat abstract sense) due to our warlike nature. Klaatu does not exhibit any villainous characteristics and exhibits a high degree of civilized nature in light of humanity's response to his visit to Earth.
