Cat-Women Of The Moon (1953)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Cat-Women Of The Moon (1953) Released originally in both 3-D and 2-D versions, but the 3-D effects were kept to a minimum. A rocket ship from America is bound for the moon with Sonny Tufts as the commander, Victor Jory as the co-pilot (this was not NASA and astronauts no matter what the late-arriving revisionists might think), Marie Windsor as the navigator, Douglas Fowley as the engineer and Bill Phipps as the radio man. After landing where Windsor suggests, and going through some weird stuff and happenings, they find a cavern which leads them to signs of civilization. Since Jory has a gun and the others don't, there is some time spent trying to get his gun away from him. The non-astronaut space-travelers then find about a dozen attractive (some of them) females, who are all that is left of the original inhabitants. Jory discovers they control Windsor hypnotically and that they plan to learn the rocket-ship's secrets from the crew, and then use the ship to take off for Earth where, with their superior powers, they will assume control. Evidently, two or three of them made it.

Movie Trivia:
  • The control cabin of the rocket and two of the space suits are recycled from Project Moon Base (1953).
  • William Phipps told interviewer Tom Weaver, "When I saw that spaceship set, I thought I was workin' for Soupy Sales! And that giant spider! They held it up with big ropes above us on the cave set and dropped it down on our heads. At the time, I thought it was the most outrageous, absurd thing in the world - how did spiders get on the Moon?! It was all just incredible - I thought, 'How can anybody put this in a movie? It's gonna ruin it!'"
  • This was originally released to theaters in 3D.
  • Film music enthusiasts will note Elmer Bernstein's credit for the score, while space art enthusiasts will recognize the moonscapes by Chesley Bonestell.
