Storyline

Al brigadiere dei Carabinieri d'un paesino veneto viene affidato l'incaricato di svolgere indagini sull'arrivo d'un disco volante. Durante l'inchiesta interroga un gruppo di persone che dichiarano d'aver visto realmente i marziani. Alla fine, soltanto Vittoria, una povera contadina vedova e con molti figli, riesce ad impadronirsi d'un marziano, e lo vende al padrone. La madre dell'uomo, però, sopprime il marziano, accusa la contadina di truffa e spedisce il figlio in manicomio. In questo modo tutti i protagonisti della vicenda sono accusati di essere dei visionari ed il sensazionale avvenimento viene ben presto sepolto nell'indifferenza generale. Written by rosebud6

Seen on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater in 1972
27 January 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

1964's "The Flying Saucer" is a rarely seen Italian comedy from director Tinto Brass, not to be confused with 1949's "The Flying Saucer," starring its director, Mikel Conrad. Alberto Sordi essays four different roles, mainly as the investigating police sergeant who deadpans throughout the film as each 'eyewitness' confesses to seeing something completely different from everyone else. As the telegrapher, he actually spies the saucer (a dead ringer for the Jupiter 2 from LOST IN SPACE), as well as its occupant, a comely Martian female who does little but wander around, mistaken for a Mardi Gras costumer (shades of "Abbott and Costello Go to Mars"). Sordi's priest spends more time in the local saloon than he does in church, and all four wind up in the asylum by film's end, treated by electroshock therapy because no one will believe them. Fans of Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater rang in the new year, Jan 1 1972, with 1963's "Unearthly Stranger," followed by "The Flying Saucer," thematically linked by their attractive female invaders.
