I saw this movie before the 1st Moon Landing in 1969!
15 April 2011 | by microx96002See all my reviews

Even though it says it wasn't broadcast until 1970, I distinctly remember watching this in Ireland on TV. The station was using it as a "filler" while waiting for the astronauts to step out onto the moon. The movie had to be cut off short of the ending when they decided to come out of the lunar module. Had to wait a week until the station re-broadcast it in it's entirety. So it must have been given a release in Europe prior to it's American release, after sitting on the shelf for 3 years! I remember it was an enjoyable movie, I don't remember much of the plot but it was interesting to see James Drury in a different role, as we had only seen him in The Virginian up to that time. I would love to see it again. Maybe Timeless Media will find it and release it on DVD as they have several other Universal TV movies.
