Based on the HG Wells story. The world is delighted when a space craft containing a crew made up of the world's astronauts lands on the moon, they think for the first time. But the delight turns to shock when the astronauts discover an old British flag and a document declaring that the moon is taken for Queen Victoria proving that the astronauts were not the first men on the moon. On Earth, an investigation team finds the last of the Victorian crew - a now aged Arnold Bedford and he tells them the story of how he and his girlfriend, Katherine Callender, meet up with an inventor, Joseph Cavor, in 1899. Cavor has invented Cavorite, a paste that will allow anything to deflect gravity and he created a sphere that will actually take them to the moon. Taking Arnold and accidentally taking Katherine they fly to the moon where, to their total amazement, they discover a bee-like insect population who take an unhealthy interest in their Earthly visitors...

Peter Finch appears briefly as a messenger. He was reputedly only visiting the set when the original actor assigned to play the part failed to show up. See more »
At the start Arnold Bedford claims that his money is invested in boots from the Boer War. Since the film takes place in 1899, the Boer war was still taking place. See more »
Yet to fight in a war is considered an honor. Well, it's difficult to explain, but men who are killed in battle are heroes. That's odd, isn't it?
The Grand Lunar:
Men enjoy to make war?
No. No, they detest it!
The Grand Lunar:
Then if they make war, they are defective.
Well... well, we're not perfect. Well, mankind is still developing. We're not, we're not perfect. There are men of peace.
The Grand Lunar:
My concern is with the men of violence, the men who kill. Soon others will be coming from Earth. Our galleries will be strewn with dead.

Filmed in Dynamation - The wonder of the screen! See more »
I watched this film for the first time recently and as a 22 year old brought up with E.T. and Star Wars I have to say I was still impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the whole film. The effects are great, the story is well adapted to fit on to your screen and is believe it or not, thought provoking. I would recommend this film to anyone of any age and especially those who enjoyed the original Time Machine and Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Great fun.
