Storyline

Two members of the Never-Drop Aero Club claim that they can reach the moon by the aeroplane. They get an astronomer to get his telescope out and see how the conditions are on the moon. He comes on with a big telescope and looks through it, finds everything in fine condition from earth to moon, so the party start out. As they rise and turn upside down then right side up, they start on their journey to the moon. They pass over a busy city, knocking down buildings and chimneys. After passing over the city they come in contact with the planet Saturn. Bump it, encircle it, and then on their way to the moon they ride through the air and see an old man coming out of the planet Mars. The anchor on the aeroplane accidentally catches the old man by the neck and carries him off. The old man tries to get away, and he sees Halley's comet coming along and he grabs hold of the tail of the comet and goes away. One of the men in the aeroplane sees him and takes out a lasso. With a couple of swings he ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A clever trick picture
30 June 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

As the title suggests, this is a clever trick picture. It pleases, and one wonders at the methods adopted by the director and cameraman to get the natural looking effects. It pleases children and is full of comedy. - The Moving Picture World, April 4, 1914
