Invaders from Mars 1953
This 1953 classic is the most visually unabashed SF movie of the 50s. While hampered by a low budget, this first “invasion of the body snatchers” film scared a generation of kids witless, but also contains interesting themes for adults to chew on.

One night, young boy David McLean (Jimmy Hunt) awakens in the midst of a storm. Peering out of his window, he spots a glowing flying saucer descending into the hills behind his home. Fearing the worst, David tells his father, George (Leif Erickson), who goes out to look in the morning. When his father returns, something’s changed. More adults in David’s town fall prey to the unseen force in the sandpit behind his home. Totally isolated from his changed parents, David turns to doctors Stuart Kelston (Arthur Franz) and Pat Blake (Helena Carter). The trio do all they can – enlisting the help of the military – to face off the Martians before more people fall under their dreaded control.
