HISTORY

The Invasion is the fourth version of Jack Finney's serial story and novel The Body Snatchers, which was first filmed in 1955 and released in 1956 as The Invasion of the Body Snatchers (see entry).

The original actors were Kevin McCarthy and Dana Wynter. Subsequent actors were Donald Sutherland ("Matthew Bennell") and Brooke Adams ("Elizabeth Driscoll") in 1978, and Terry Kinney and Meg Tilly in 1993. ...
