Invasion of the Saucer Men (1957)

This is one of those sci-fi movies of the 50s that obviously did not take itself too seriously. Sure, the typical invasion from outer space was the theme of the film, but the bug-eyed aliens are so gosh-darn cute and the costumes so cool you can’t help but smile instead of becoming afraid. And, the script also takes a less than serious look at the invasion. Sure, it is a dopey martian invasion movie but it makes no attempt to be otherwise and that is why I liked the movie so much–for what it was, it was sure fun. So, if you do watch the film, view it more as comedy and don’t be too hard on this old film! If you do, you’ll find it’s a delightful little time passer.
