This Island, Earth (1955)

Based on the novel by Raymond F. Jones (1915–1994), Jeff Morrow (1907–1993) stars as Exeter, the leader of an alien expedition to earth. After befriending earth scientists held captive by his own people, Exeter decides to sabotage the plan of his superiors to invade and occupy earth. Unlike the traditional alien invasion motif, viewers are made to feel sympathy for the invading aliens who have no other choice but to invade earth, because their own planet has been destroyed by an enemy.
