Earth v. Flying Saucers is 50s sci fi camp with some surprising elements of sophistication - from the not-totally-evil motivations of the invading aliens to the sexual innuendos that somehow slipped by the censors of the time. Fascinating special effects. The plot is simple. Aliens need elbow room and migrate west, but the natives come up with a special gun that drops the saucers on top of the Washington landmarks in an apocalyptic battle for which the strategies of both sides eluded me.

But boy, despite the grey area in the alien intentions, the spiteful shooting up of the Lincoln memorial should have made any patriot's blood boil! Root causes patooie!
