In the beginning of the film, as the narrator introduces the characters, they are shown walking to the rocket through heavy fog. NASA would never launch a mission in that kind of weather. See more »
Dr. Rochester steps into the "quicksand" and is sucked under. But before it cuts away from the wide shot, where he first cries out and drops out of shot, he is visible dropping to the set floor to simulate getting sucked in. The following close-ups depict him sinking slowly into the moon surface. See more »
The "starring" cast credits are shown against a background of stars. Each name seems to zoom outward from the center of the screen, like meteors in a shower; but as each one appears it stops and remains onscreen until all 12 names are visible simultaneously. Ken Clark's name is the first shown, followed in order by Michi Kobi, Tom Conway, Tony Dexter, John Wengraf, Bob Montgomery Jr., Phillip Baird, Richard Weber, Tema Bey, Roger Til, Cory Devlin, and "and Anna-Lisa"; but when they have all settled in their places, the first row of names has Clark, Baird, Dexter, Til, Conway; the second row has Devlin, Bey, Montgomery, Wengraf; and the third row has Kobi, Anna-Lisa, Weber. Francis X. Bushman's name appears on a second screen as a "guest star". See more »
This film remains rather stilted and slow-moving and that's not a good thing in what is essentially a 1950s style Rocketship B-Movie...it has many of the trademarks common to those...hurtling meteor storm attacks!, silly and impossible solutions to every problem usually involving shooting a rocket at something else and an intergender crew(although this one also has the daring for its time interracial crew!)...the problem with this film isn't its story really which could have been fun but the fact we see so little of what we hear about after the fact..more on screen adventure would have been a tremendous help..the gay undertones present in this film are also disturbing and sometimes laughable(although how else could the subject have been brought up in the time?). Still deserves points for being so daring.
