THE BAMBOO SAUCER

One of my favorite science fiction movies featuring the UFO issue is 1968’s “The Bamboo Saucer”.

It’s by no means a cinematic masterpiece but it contains issues regarding the theories and relationships regarding UFOs that surprised many who are knowledgeable about the subject.

To not give too much away, the story revolves around a pilot who is chastised for reporting a UFO sighting. He spends much of his time trying to prove his sighting and when something goes wrong, I won’t say what, he’s then recruited to a team of a congressman to venture into Mainland China to recover a flying saucer. Things go from bad to worse and the ending is a real thrill ride. It’s not a “happy camper” sort of story although there are moments of humor. You’ll see several favorite character actors of the day you wouldn’t expect to see in an espionage drama which the movie turns out to be.

What’s of major interest is what goes on with the flying saucer and I’ll leave it there.

This movie is in my top five of UFO movies of the classic era. There are alien invasion movies but there are those UFO/Flying Saucer movies that give a lot of thoughtful information and real data. Of careful note, pay attention to the theories regarding the propulsion system of the flying saucer. I saw “The Bamboo Saucer” late one night on CBS channel 2 way back in the early 1980s when I lived in the Hudson Valley area. I found this movie delightful, funny, very tense at times, well grounded in human and political issues such as the trust problems we had during the Cold War.

So enjoy “The Bamboo Saucer” and spot the actors who are the performers that the general public around the world are quite familiar with and still endure.
