Movie #1271 (#89 this year): Killers From Space(1954, W Lee Wilder)

The usual invaders from space try to conquer earth. No great shakes.
However, I loved the opening. There is a nice long pre-credit sequence in which the United States Air Force drops an atomic bomb on a Nevada test site. As the giant mushroom cloud sprouts up we cut to the lurid title shot: "Killers From Space". From space? After what we've just witnessed, I don't think we need to worry about killers from space!
