Invasion USA

First dog watch, 2 bells (5:06 pm)

I just watched Invasion USA, an early 1950's film about an invasion on US soil by our "enemy." They never specifically say who the enemy is. Several people in a bar bind together as a newscast announcing the invasion is broadcast. They all experience some type of regret, such as not helping the army build tanks, or joining the navy, etc. They were all very "patriotic" things that seemed to be regretted.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the armed forces or the government was responsible for the film in the first place. In any case, the invasion turns out to be mass hypnotism by a man in the bar, but it leaves all the people more patriotic.

I give this movie one empty seat for the unnamed enemy that was supposed to be Russian.
