The CIA sends playboy Mike Trent to Alaska with agent Vee Langley, posing as his "nurse," to investigate flying saucer sightings. At first, installed in a hunting lodge, the two play in the wilderness. But then they sight a saucer. Investigating, our heroes clash with an inept gang of Soviet spies, also after the saucer secret.

According to the dates shown on two telegrams, the basic action of the film takes place mid-August 1949. See more »
When the two protagonists first enter the Alaskan lodge, there is a large mounted deer head visible on the wall immediately inside the door on one side of the window. Later, when the bad guys ambush them, the deer head has moved to the wall on the other side of the window. See more »

Before the title, a message, 'We gratefully acknowledge the cooperation of those in authority who made the release of the "Flying Saucer" film possible at this time.' See more »
I've seen this film a few times, I must confess, and I like it. My favorite part is Mike Trent's bender in the bars of the Juneau waterfront. For my money, it is the centerpiece of the film and also where Denver Pyle appears. I love McCarthy era portrayals of Soviet operatives. Hantz is a first class strange character with voyeuristic and other kinky tendencies. The official-type Americanos are very fifties. People often expect all films to be realistic and can't seem to appreciate the interesting little views we can get into the past from off beat, low budget stuff like "The Flying Saucer".
