EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS and FIRST MEN IN THE MOON

HARRYHAUSENEARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS

(1956, Fred F. Sears) Silvery saucers bisect the Washington Monument and slice off the Capitol dome, as lines of stunning banality fly. Harryhausen’s UFOs inspired Tim Burton’s in Mars Attacks. Approx 83 min. DCP.

“One of the countless pieces of ‘50s pulp to come out of a social fabric defined equally by interest in the unknown and mounting Cold War paranoia. Here, however, such social significance takes a backseat to pure B-movie matinee fun, albeit without losing any of its implicit self-examinations of moral questions in the process."
