The Flying Saucer is a 1950 independently made American black-and-white science fiction spy film drama, written by Howard Irving Young, from an original story by Mikel Conrad who also produced, directed, and stars with Pat Garrison and Hantz von Teuffen. The film was distributed in the United States by Film Classics Inc. The Flying Saucer was re-released in 1953 in the U.S. by Realart Pictures Inc., as a double-feature with Atomic Monster, the retitled-reissue of Man Made Monster, originally released in 1941 by Universal Pictures.
The Flying Saucer is the first feature film to deal with the (then) new and hot topic of flying saucers. Flying saucers, or alien craft shaped like flying disks or saucers, were first identified and given the popular name on June 24, 1947, when private pilot Kenneth Arnold reported nine silvery, crescent-shaped objects flying in tight formation. A newspaper reporter coined the snappy tagline, "flying saucers", which captured the public's imagination. The film has no relationship and should not be confused with the later Ray Harryhausen science fiction film Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, released by Columbia Pictures.

Destination Moon (a.k.a.

Destination Moon was the first major U.S. science fiction film to deal with the practical scientific and engineering challenges of space travel and to speculate on what a manned expedition to the Moon would look like. Famed science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein contributed to the script.
The film's premise is that private industry will mobilize, finance, and manufacture the first spacecraft to the Moon, and that the U.S. government will be forced to purchase or lease the technology to remain the dominant power in space. Different industrialists cooperate to support the private venture. In the final scene, as the crew approaches the Earth, the traditional "The End" title card heralds the dawn of the coming Space Age: "This is THE END...of the Beginning".

1984 is a 1956 British black-and-white science fiction film, based on the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, depicting a totalitarian future society. This is the first cinema rendition of the story, directed by Michael Anderson and starring Edmond O'Brien as protagonist Winston Smith, and featuring Donald Pleasence, Jan Sterling, and Michael Redgrave. The character O'Brien, the antagonist, was renamed "O'Connor", due to the shared surname of the actor Edmond O'Brien.
For the U.S. market, 1984 was distributed in 1956 on a double feature with another British science fiction film, The Gamma People. After distributor agreements expired, the film was withdrawn from theatrical and TV distribution channels by Orwell's estate and has not been obtainable legally for many years.
In 1954, Peter Cushing and Andre Morell starred in a BBC-TV made-for-TV adaptation which was extremely popular with British audiences, leading to the production of the 1956 O'Brien theatrical film version. Pleasence had also appeared in the BBC television version, playing the character of Syme, which for the film was amalgamated with that of the character Parsons.
Like the earlier film adaption of Animal Farm, 1984 was secretly funded by the Central Intelligence Agency.
