It started with 20 Million Miles to Earth - 1956 or so.....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20_Million_Miles_to_EarthA space ship goes to Venus - 20 million miles away...... it's found not to be too hospitable..... a few men die there and the ship heads back to Earth..they bring back a sample egg of a Venusian creature....on the way back, a meteor hits and disables the ship....it crashes into the Adriatic Sea....only two survive...the egg in the sample case is washed ashore..It hatches and grows into a giant monster that rampages around Rome...They finally manage to kill it...-------Next movie up..Earth vs Flying Saucers - 1956http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_vs._the_Flying_SaucersFunny to watch their 'computers' and special effects.....and the old cars everywhere...well, they were new 1950s cars then!......Here's how it ends"The flying saucers are invulnerable to conventional weapons, but from his observations Marvin develops an ultra-sonic weapon, which is later upgraded to an effective anti-magnetic weapon. He feverishly starts building a prototype, and just as he finishes, a saucer arrives. Marvin tests his weapon and the saucer is disabled enough to send it wobbling away. As they leave, the aliens jettison Gen. Hanley and another captive, who fall to their deaths.Groups of alien ships then show up in the skies over Washington, Paris, London, and Moscow, and begin destroying everything. But there are enough of Dr. Marvins' new truck-mounted weapons deployed in Washington, D.C. to slowly shoot them down. One saucer clips and topples the Washington Monument, while another crashes into the Capitol Building and a third into Union Station. The defenders also discover that the aliens are vulnerable to small arms fire once they leave the immediate force fields of their saucers."- - -I'm glad they saved the Earth back then since we're still around....IT's still running if you need a 50s sci fi fix....t.
