Original Trailer for 1953’s War of the Worlds

by Kenny Hoeschen

We are big fans of classic science fiction films of the 1950s and 60s. Here is the original trailer for 1953’s telling of the H.G. Wells classic, War of the Worlds starring Gene Barry, Ann Robinson and Les Tremayne. This film was the highest-grossing science-fiction film of 1953. It also won an Academy Award for Best Special Effects, making it the third George Pal production in four years to be given that honor.

The film, of course, was remade in 2005 by Steven Spielberg and starred Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning. We never thought it necessary to watch the remake.
