Best Family Movies of 1956 : Supersonic Saucer

Supersonic Saucer

5.6/10 IMDB

A group of schoolchildren come upon an alien from Venus, and help him against a gang of criminals who are trying to kidnap him. The recipe for a successful Children's Film Foundation production: take a peaceful rural setting and fill with an equal mix of boys and girls (two of each will suffice). Add a bunch of crooks, a gentle moral, and a chase. For added flavour, director Tom Wells (son of H.G. Wells) spices up an old formula with a sprinkling of science-fiction in the form of a friendly alien creature. Enjoy!

Starring: Marcia Monolescue, Gillian Harrison, Fella Edmonds, Andrew Motte-Harrison, Tony Lyons, Hilda Fenemore, Donald Gray, Patrick Boxill, Raymond Rollett, Patrick Connor ..
Directed by: Guy Fergusson
Release date: 1956-03-01
