    One thought on “Keep Watching the Skies!American Science Fiction Movies of the Fifties: Volume I, 1950-1957”

    1. I went through a phase where I watched a lot of fifties, and sixties sci fi. In fact, I think I watched every single film I could get my hands on, or eyes on, depending on your point of view. This book is simply the most thoroughly researched book on sci fi from the fifties (it goes a little past 1960, but it mainly covers the fifties) I have read. I can't say I've read this huge thing from cover the cover, but I kept reading it for years, and always found it informative. I can wholeheartedly re [...]

    2. Although I have this on my 'read' shelf, that is not completely accurate. This book, which reviews most US science fiction films from 1950 - 1962 (as well as some non-US movies and some films in other genres with sciecne fiction elements), really is not something to sit and read straight through. I can see going back to it every so often and reading a review and background story on a film or two. And, it is the background that sets this book abpart from so many other movie review collections. Th [...]

    3. This book provides the best overview I've seen of those wonderful science fiction movies of the 50's and into the early 60's. if you're not quite sure what films qualify, these are the ones that used to air as Saturday afternoon matinees on your local television stations before cable television took over.To call this comprehensive is a tremendous understatement. Here you will find plot synopses, reviews, critiques, background stories, production tidbits and pictures. You may disagree with the wr [...]

    4. Yes, it's a reference book, and it was written before (or even the Internet) and DVD (and only as the very dawn of home video), so the amount of research work that went into this is amazing. It's a survey of every American SF movie from 1950 to 1962, listed alphabetically by year. Entries average 2-3 pages, with some in the latter half of the book (originally published separately) going to 7 or 8 pages. I didn't read very word in the book, as his plot summaries tend to be exhaustive, unless it' [...]

    5. OkayI found this a little overrated. Mr. Warren's definition of science fiction and mine vary obviously. While the book is well written, some of the worst movies have the most written, and some don't even deserve to be in the book. But there is some good, if at times, smarmy information.

    6. OK, I'm not sure how much of an audience there is for the science fiction movies of the 1950s anymore, but this is how reference books should be done. It's informative, but it's also written with a personal touch that makes the essays about each of these films very readable. The illustrations and graphics are well done, worthy of a specialist's interest.

    7. I'm a huge movie nut. And a special part of my life comes from staying up late on Friday nights with my dad and watching horror and science fiction movies double features on the local version of Fright Night Theater. Both the good and the bad. So many treasures are to be found in this book. And a lot of special memories for me.

    8. As a fan of SF films, and golden age films in particular, I found this a great read. This is not film catalog, but more of history of the Golden age of SF films, from the 50's through the early 60's. It covers not only individual productions, but also provides an overview of the industry as a whole over the time frame.
