Can anyone recommend websites or torrents where I can download classic 1950's sci-fi movies/clips? You know stuff like Mars Attacks, Forbidden Planet, and other low-budget goodness.

Thanks guys!

There's some good stuff on Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/channels/Science-Fiction#kind=videos&sort=popularity&type=movies). That's really a streaming site though. Not sure if/how you'd download it.

Go to the movies section and browse/search to your heart's content. Mostly public domain, so there's not that pesky copyright crap to deal with!

I was a kid back in the 1950s and regularly went to the the Junior Matinee movies every Saturday morning. There was a serial based on the Flash Gordon comics - models of space ships suspended on wires, smoke from the rocket exhaust drifting UPWARDS, unbelievably bad make-up, and the acting?!

It all seemed so REAL and scary!

I saw all this stuff first time round, and thought it was great.
