What It’s About: Teens run over an alien that is part of an invading force. Unfortunately, the authorities refuse to believe the teens-can they find a way to stop the aliens on their own?
Why Watch it Today?: Today in 1947 Kenneth Arnold saw UFOs that he described as flying like a “saucer skipping across water”. The reporters shortened that description to the familiar “Flying Saucer” so popular in the late 1940s and 1950s. Invasion of the Saucer Men is a pleasantly tongue-in-cheek take on the alien invader sub-genre.
