A Curious Omission?
Recently I was watching the classic science fiction film, Invaders from Mars (1953).
I have the 50th anniversary disc, which includes an “American version” and a “British version” …
Whenever I’ve watched it in the past I’ve always chosen the American version.
But this time, just for a little diversity, I decided to choose the British version. (Yeah, my life is that pathetic … ask my wife … )
Anyway, I’m watching it and I notice that there’s this whole segment about the various types of UFOs that is omitted from the American version.
The segment talks about the case of an American airman who crashed while chasing a flying saucer, solar systems believed to harbor alien
civilizations, etc., etc. … and then it goes into surprising detail about the types of UFOs that were known to exist back then. Specifically, it
identifies three types: a little saucer shaped thing they believed to be unmanned, a larger saucer shaped craft and another UFO that looks a lot like
an airplane, with a fuselage and wings.
The third type caught my attention because it really looked like something that would have been created by the U.S. military. The only thing missing
was an Air Force insignia.
If you don’t believe me, check it out! You can buy it on Amazon (www.imdb.com...
At any rate, it sure seems curious that this segment was eliminated by the American censors but not by the Brits … what does it all mean …?
