It! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958)

So you thought Alien was an original? Well here’s its prototype, complete with a spaceship whose crew includes two women, an alien that looks like the creature from the Black Lagoon, the gradual elimination of the crew, and an alien that stows away on the flight returning to Earth.

Set in the future (1973) and revolving around the first manned expedition to Mars, the film is not at all bad by B Movie standards.
