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...

Even supposing that 19th century deep sea diving suits could have let the 19th century astronauts move about and breathe on the moon, their hands were left uncovered. This, contrary to popular belief, would not have resulted in a fatal decompression. At most, they could have suffered bruising similar to "hickeys" to their hands. See more »
The Grand Lunar:
You say men cling to different tongues and beliefs. Is there no one ruler?
No. No, every century some despot tries, but up to now no one's succeeded. People like Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Napoleon...
The Grand Lunar:
Does this not lead to confusion?
Yes, it does. And worse. Starvation... hostility... even war.
The Grand Lunar:
Tell me of war.
Tell you of war? Oh my goodness... Well... it usually starts with a whacking great explosion.

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.
