Originating during the science-fiction/Red-Scare boom of the '50s, Invaders From
Mars is an entertaining little picture that holds up reasonably well. David
MacLean (Jimmy Hunt) is a 12-year-old astronomy buff who is stunned to see a
flying saucer landing in the sand pit beyond his backyard. His father, George
(Leif Erickson), ventures out to look the next morning and mysteriously
disappears. David's mother, Mary (Hillary Brooke), worriedly calls police, but
they are quickly swallowed up by the sand in the backyard. Later, George and the
two cops return, but their personalities are markedly different having been
taken over by the Martians. As David tries to find help, everyone around him
comes under the frightening zombie-like spell. He finally encounters two
believers in Dr. Blake (Helena Carter) and Dr. Kelston (Arthur Franz).
Discovering David's shocking story to be true, the doctors call in the military
setting up a confrontation that escalates when David and Dr. Blake are taken
captive within the Martian craft. The soldiers race to save the pair from the
green menace leading to an explosive finale that involves bullets, grenades,
TNT, and a spectacular alien ray gun that can melt stone.

* Controversy and dispute surrounds the history of the movie. According to
recent interviews, John Seitz, the cinematographer, confirmed that the film was
planned in great detail to be filmed in 3D but that the last minute it was
discovered that no camera was available. Nonetheless, it is claimed that all of
the sets were constructed at Republic Studios to be shot in 3D and that the
artificial separation of set elements is confirmation of this design intention.
Meanwhile, the only documentary evidence for a 3D production is a claimed
newspaper advertisement placed by the producers (not the studio) while the film
was in pre-production, and no official records are known to exist to throw
further light onto the matter.

* The special effects department used condoms to create the "bubbles" on the
walls of the underground tunnels.

* This was actually one of the first science fiction scripts written in the
1950s. The revised version of the script was completed in September 1950. The
film wasn't produced until 1952 and released in early 1953.

* Among the cost-cutting measures made during filming was the elimination of
Cricket, David's dog. The use of animals during filming almost always takes more
time, and therefore more money, a luxury that director William Cameron Menzies
didn't have.

* Richard Deacon's film debut.

* In one scene, Dr. Kelston refers to the "Lubbock Lights" and to a "Captain
Mantell." These were real life U.F.O. events that created a national wide
sensation in their day. The photographs shown by Dr Kelston are actual
photographs of the Lubbock Lights that appeared in newspapers and magazines.

* According to script supervisor Mary Yerke, director and production
designer William Cameron Menzies filled 12 notebooks with charcoal sketches
depicting every scene he planned to shoot. Just days before principle
photography, all of these storyboard sketches disappeared from the production

* This film was shot on the new single strip Eastman Color negative.
Cinecolor Labs then produced the trailers and release prints in the three color
Cinecolor process. When the Cinecolor Labs went bankrupt, the original elements
and printing matrices were seized and sold for salvage.

* The screenplay was originally optioned by Arthur Gardner and Jules V.
Levy. The option expired before they could get a production off the ground. The
rights then went to producer Edward L. Alperson, who was Levy's boss at the

* In August 1957, this film was being shown on a double bill with This
Island Earth (1955).
