Commies Have Infiltrated IMDb...
22 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of course the film was 1950s era propaganda (actually made in the early 60s) but that doesn't mean it was a gross exaggeration of what life in a Communist America would be like.

Do you guys really think living in Russia was fun for the Russians? Do you think events depicted in the film didn't happen there? In any case, the film is important for historical purposes as much as anything else. Watch for a young Robert Conrad in the factory scene.

This film is available as a "special feature" of the DVD release of "Invasion U.S.A." (1952) and there is a listing of 100 "cold war" era titles of a similar genre.
