I watched War of the Worlds (1953 version) on DVD this morning, and noticed the G rating. Why is alien invasion, mass destruction and evacuation of cities, and nuclear warfare considered "fun for the entire family"? Even though it has a happy ending, I think it would at least warrant a PG-13 rating. Just curious. I'm not really concerned about movie ratings.
I think the movie is Technicolor.
The War of the Worlds opens with a black-and-white prologue featuring newsreel war footage and a voice-over describing the destructive technological advancements of Earthly warfare from World War I through World War II. The image then smash cuts to vivid Technicolor and the dramatic opening title card and credits which follow.

Because it is a bad movie and they want to make as available to the largest audience as possible.
