"It Came From Outer Space" (1953)

It Came From Outer Space
Hello, Pulp Friends,

1953 seemed to be the golden year for sci-fi and alien invasions.
After "Invaders From Mars" and "War of the Worlds", from the same year, we deal today with the monstrous aliens of "It Came From Outer Space" ("Destinazione... Terra!" in its Italian release), written by Ray Bradbury and directed by Jack Arnold.

Monstrous aliens, I said, but in this case first impressions can be deceiving.
Stranded in the Arizona desert, the monstrous, but pacific, crew of an alien ship xenomorphically take the aspect of the local people so they can fix the ship without alarming anyone and leave to go back home.
A classic indeed :)

Wish you all a wonderful Pulp Sunday :)
