War of the Satellites

War of the Satellites is a 1958 independently made black and white film distributed by Allied Artists in the UK and USA.

The film was rapidly conceived produced and released in an attempt to respond to and utilise the media frenzy surrounding the launch of Sputnik, the first artificial satellite in space.

The film sees an ‘unknown force’ declaring war against Earth as when the United Nations refuses to cease development and the planned launch of a satellite into space.
