Storyline

Dr. Huntley and Professor Nichols are able to complete their work on a moon rocket because of an unexpected inheritance. They travel to the moon, but find a lush garden paradise rather than a barren wasteland. They are captured by virtually naked telepathic humanoids and taken in front of the Great Council. The Moon Goddess decides they should be allowed to continue their experiments, and Dr. Huntley begins falling in love with her. Professor Nichols worries about getting Huntley to return to earth.

Trivia

When Dr. Huntley and the Professor are driving to the launch site, they pass the Variety Theater, which is showing Hideout in the Sun (1960). That film, which was Doris Wishman's first movie (Nude on the Moon was her second), launched her film making career. See more »

Ridiculous, even for sexploitation standards
20 July 2013 | by (Bosnia) – See all my reviews

Well... what can I say, the title gives it away, sort of. It's just a bunch of topless girls on the Moon (well actually, someone's backyard), and a duo of lousy and unprofessional astronauts who have enough money for rocket fuel yet cannot afford air-locked helmets. Oh and one of them falls "deeply in love" with the alien queen, though she never spoke to him. Maybe it was his first time seeing a topless woman.

All in all, the only reason this movie was made is to show topless women in a time when such a thing was extremely rare in cinema. As such it is now outdated, and watched for camp value, or if you have a fetish for 60s women, but then again there are a lot better 60s sexploitation flicks out there.
