Destination Moon takes you back in time to before the Space Age for a trip to the moon the way it should be done. You'll ride in a cigar-shaped rocket with Cadillac fins, wear a bubble-headed spacesuit, walk in space and worry how you're all going to get home on the remaining fuel. Although Destination Moon was eerily accurate, actual spaceflight turned out to be a bit more complex, but much less stylish.

The winner of the 1950 ACADEMY AWARD for Best Special Effects, Destination Moon was the first major science fiction film produced in the U.S. and lifted the genre from the realm of the fantastic to the world of the believable.

The suspenseful plot relates the saga of man's first voyage to the moon amid a series of scientific cliffhangers. With a notable pedigree including George Pal (War of the Worlds, tom thumb, The Time Machine, When Worlds Collide), a story by the dean of science fiction, Robert Heinlein and perhaps the real star of the film, astronomical art by noted artist and designer Chelsey Bonestell, Destination Moon remains groundbreaking and hard-core science fiction

 Destination Moon---1950s----great film

| | See all raywheat's reviews (1)

I was in my early teens when I first saw this film at the time it was rated the best semi-documentary film ever made. We thought it was ''out of this world''. I've had the video for years just had to have the dvd. Great film. Its a change from everyone running around like headless chickens shooting each other.
