Invasion USA (1952)

Invasion USA is a 1952 drama that depicts an enemy invasion of the United States. The enemy was never specifically identified in the film, but clearly meant to be Soviet forces (as the film was set during the height of the Cold War). In the film, enemy paratroopers jump into the nation's capitol, dressed as U.S. Army paratroopers and take over Washington DC as well as the rest of the country. An entirely wretched film that relies heavily on mismatched military stock footage, its popularity has increased since being lampooned on "Mystery Science Theatre 3000" aka "MST3K". This film is not related to the similarly titled Chuck Norris action film Invasion U.S.A..

The following weapons were used in the film Invasion USA (1952):

M1 Garand

The M1 Garand is seen in the hands of both American troops and 'Fifth Column' Soviet commandos dressed as U.S. Soldiers.
