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.

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 »


When the professor tells Jeff to say goodbye to the Moon Queen, she is holding a scepter that emits smoke. As the scene switches angles, the scepter changes from her right to her left hand and back again. See more »


Professor: [Discussing the upcoming Moon trip] Well, if all goes according to plan, we'll be back in Miami in four days.
Dr. Jeff Huntley: Then you can get to see that movie you were talking about.

I've seen hundreds of B-grade movies and have never seen one as hilariously "bad" as this one! There were parts I laughed harder at (the scientists talking to each other on CB's when they're right next to each other, the topless moongirl who eats the candy bar wrapper instead of the candy bar) than ANY other movie I can think of! Monty Python included!

Just to give you a little taste, when they leave Florida in their rocket and land on the moon, the "moon" looks exactly like Florida with palm trees and grass and trees and everything! Too funny for words.

If you are an enthusiast of B-grade cinema, I couldn't recommend a film more frighteningly "perfect" in everything movies of this type have to offer! Laughs galore, off-the-wall plot, horrendous scenery and costumes, awful acting... it's amazing!!
