Film / Cat-Women of the Moon

Go To

Mankinds' first expedition to the Moon courts disaster by including a woman in the crew.

Well there's more to it than that, but not much. Part of the Lady Land subgenre of sci-fi cheapies (see also Queen of Outer Space and Fire Maidens from Outer Space) in which an Interplanetary Voyage leads to the discovery of an all-female society on another world. Rather than using this premise to explore gender politics of the time, we instead get fanservice and the restoration of a reassuring sense of male patriarchy by the end.

What were you expecting — rocket science?

The movie has the distinction of being one of the worst movies ever made about the moon. Until the 1959 remake Missile to the Moon, which managed to be even worse.
