When Mike flies to Twin Lakes, the flight takes 6 minutes of film time, and so the distance must be several miles. And yet when the group walks through the tunnel, they appear to get there in only a few minutes. See more »
Mr. Trent, you're giving us a great deal of trouble. Why didn't you stay in New York with your drunken friends of the night club?
I sobered up.

I tried to like The Flying saucer...I really did, but this low budget thriller simply didn't work for me. (It didn't "take off", if you will.) For one thing the black and white photography is so bleak and cold that it actually works against the film. The acting ranges from bland to overwrought and the dialog is stilted and lifeless. Here's the thing; all of these shortcomings taken together still might mot torpedo the overall enjoyment of this film, but its' boneheaded polemic (even for 1950) left me flat. I did like the location shooting ( the film is set in Alaska) but that didn't stop me from wanting the movie to be over--soon. The Flying Saucer is disappointing on all levels.
