* ValuesDissonance: The whole film plays like a nativist [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbatory fantasy]], filled with hysterical appeals to emotion (The old [[RapeAsDrama "THEY'LL COME FOR OUR WOMEN"]] chestnut appears in the last minutes of the dream) and backstabbing foreigners that are of course [[DirtyCommunists commie Double Agents]]. And most {{egregious}}ly, the apparent Aesop that, in order to combat The Forces of Communism, one has to cede everything to the government to protect us...which the producers don't seem to understand [[BecameTheirOwnAntithesis is essentially Communism in practice]].

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: This was the basic script for American invasion paranoia films like ''Film/RedDawn1984'' and ''{{Homefront}}''. John Milius probably saw this film and when he did, it was like Traffaut seeing ''Film/CitizenKane'' for the first time.

* NightmareFuel: For all the film's excessive StockFootage, misplaced PatrioticFervor, and [[ArtisticLicenseMilitary misunderstanding of Nuclear Weapons]], the imagery of familiar American landmarks being bombed-out and conquered by "The Enemy" is chilling...until the ridiculous AllJustADream ending, at least.
