the first of five film adaptations of H.G. Well’s 1897 novel, changing the setting from Victorian-era England to 1953 southern California, while also being a commentary on the then-ongoing Cold War and the nuclear arms race. Earth is suddenly and unexpectedly invaded by Martians and American scientist Clayton Forrester searches for any weakness that can stop them. It is considered to be one of the best films of the 1950s and won an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.
Trivia: Mystery Science Theater 3000 named one of its lead characters, the mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester, as an homage to the 1953 film.
