4.0 out of 5 stars Old Mother Earth looming up in the view plate Nov. 17 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Released by Astor Pictures in 1958.

This high class expensive true to life movie depicts the reality of space travel. Right from the beginning we see the ripples in the back drop cloth while the policeman is talking in the desert. I suspect that they did not think you would notice on a 10 inch screen. Borrowed footage of early V2 type rocket experiments cut into the 50's sci-fi designed space craft.

Steve Dayton (Richard Travis) and his mysterious partner Dirk Green (Michael Whalen) made a space craft that can reach the moon. Through a series of circumstances and an attempt to avoid the proverbial government takeover, they along with Steve's fiancé and two convicts head for the Moon. If you watched the credits you already know what dangers they were about to encounter, including Zema (Marjorie Hellen or Leslie Parrish or Margaret Hellen) who was in The Manchurian Candidate (1962).

Other encounters include:
International beauty contest winners

Miss Florida Sandra Wirth
Miss New Hampshire Pat Mowry
Miss Yugoslavia Tina Velia
Miss New York State Sanita Pelkey
Miss France Lisa Simone
Miss Illinois Marianne Gaba
Miss Germany Renata Hoy
Miss Minnesota Mary Ford

The moral of the story is to be aware of sexy Moonwomen and big rocks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cheesy 50's Sci-Fi fun March 25 2004
Format:DVD
I will admit I liked Cat-Women on the Moon better, so that's the reason I give this one four stars. I think CWOTM had a much better cast. Anyway, the plot of this movie is pretty similar, the atmosphere on the moon is depleting and the moon maidens have killed off everyone who is expendable to lengthen their air supply. One can only assume the great 'Lido' chose who lived and died.
The wayward travelers from Earth are: the scientist who built the ship, his assistant and his girlfriend, and finally two escaped convicts. None of them can really act, the worst of which is the James Dean wannabe convict. Although the convicts are fun to watch as they become experts rather quickly at flying a rocket.
Well we got a giant spider. If it was a child's project, youwould say it was wonderful. The rock monsters are pretty cool and original. True they look like giant Gumbys, but just take it in stride.
I hate to give away the ending to this deep plot, but sunlight on the moon still kills and there is a power struggle between the Lido and her succesor that leads to disaster. Enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adventure Into The Unknown Jan. 30 2004
Format:DVD
From the Wade Williams Collection and Image Entertainment, we get the definitive science fiction space extravaganza of 1959 (can you sense the sarcasm? I'm laying it on pretty thick here) directed by Richard E. Cunha, the man responsible for such cinematic schlock as She Demons (1958), Frankenstein's Daughter (1958), and Giant from the Unknown (1958). This film is actually a remake of 1953's Cat-Women of the Moon, which wasn't done by Cuhna.
This movie has nearly everything, from lovely international beauty contestant winners cast as moon maidens, a spiffy rocket ship, less than exciting space travel, meteors, rock monsters, lunar caves fraught with danger (and breathable atmosphere, go figure), diamonds as big as your fist, a giant, hairy spider with big, pointy teeth, and even a catfight...what it doesn't have; a coherent plot, decent special effects, a lucid script, good characterizations, realistic sets, or passable acting, but, in the world of B movies, this one certainly stands out.
Okay, here's the deal. Seems a scientist has built a missile he intends to fly to the moon. The government, seeing the value and advanced state of his work, decides to take over the project, much to the scientists' dismay. He pouts a lot and makes a lot of statements you'd expect from a petulant child who doesn't get his way. Meanwhile, two criminals have escaped from prison, and have taken refuge within the moon missile. The scientist discovers them, and decides to convince them, at gunpoint, to help him fly his missile to the moon before the government takes away his cardboard spacecraft...er, I mean futuristic, atomic powered spacecraft. The scientists' assistant and his fiancé get caught on the ship, and all five blast off into the great unknown of space.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous print of a beloved clinker Sept. 1 2001
By Surfink
Format:DVD
Missile to the Moon is basically a remake of Cat Women of the Moon (even reusing that giant spider) and just as much el cheapo fun as that film. I love the school-play-quality sets and props, amateurish acting, laughable dialogue, etc., (in short, everything you want in a Bad Film). For some reason the Moon Queen has ancient Mayan art hanging on her wall! (Attention Graham Hancock.) And those clumsy rock creatures are some of the most underrated 50s "monsters" (for originality if nothing else). Let's be honest here though: this is not a lunatic mess like Plan 9 or The Creeping Terror. It suffers from a bit too much technical competence to really achieve "warp" factor, yet remains a solid 70 minutes for crummy movie enthusiasts.
The DVD presentation is quite a bit above average for this type of movie. First, despite some minor speckling and a few damaged frames here and there, the print used is spectacular: good tonal scale, nice and sharp, clear sound. Overall, much better than one would expect. (In some scenes you can even see the creases on the backdrops.) There is no trailer included (unusual for Image), although you do get chapter stops and a special bonus "photo gallery" of dozens of someone's behind-the-scenes shots taken on and around the set, including many stills (some in color) of the "Moon Maidens" posing alluringly. Not exactly "the special edition," but a nice, atypical bonus for a set like this. C-movie nerds, grab this, you won't be disappointed. One star less than perfect 'cause no trailer and the (very minor) speckling and print damage.
