First Men In the Moon (1964)



Reviews and Comments

"Madam. The chances...of elephant...on the moon...are remote."

The first manned space flight lands on the moon -- only to discover the British flag and a note saying that the moon has been claimed for Queen Victoria. Thus begins this adaptation of the H.G. Wells story of the same name, which, like a more famous Wells story also does, involves time travel. Science fiction in the 50s and 60s was mostly a low budget affair for kids, but this movie is better than most, thanks to Wells' inventive ideas.
