Continuity mistake: When the press secretary kisses the hand of the alien-dressed-as-a-seductive-woman, the eyeball ring is on her right middle finger but after she knocks him out (or kills him) the ring is on the finger between the middle and the pinkie. In subsequent scenes it's back on the middle finger. (01:01:35 - 01:04:20)
Taffy Dale: Guess it wasn't the dove.
Trivia: The U.S military was asked at first to supply things such as ships, planes, and soldiers for the movie, so it can be authentic in a military sense. The military did not cooperate, however, because it made it seem as though Slim Whitman (whose song "Indian Love Call" finally defeated the aliens) would be more effective at fighting alien invaders than the United States military.
Question: I heard this movie was a remake or a compilation of different themes used in 1950's mars B-movie remakes. What are some of the themes of the movies that this movie takes? Such as, In Mars Attacks they use the music to kill the aliens I believe is a rip from a 50's movie where they use sound waves to down martian spaceships. What movie was that?
