Radar Men From The Moon (1952)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Commando Cody, 'Sky Marshal of the Universe', works with American scientists Joan Gilbert and Ted Richards in the development of a flying suit and a rocket to the Moon. When the nation's defenses are being sabotaged and destroyed, Cody learns that an atomic-gun is being used and that the men on the moon are the culprits. Cody, Joan and Ted take off in a rocket to the moon and, upon arrival, Cody is captured by moon-henchmen, working for Retik, who seeks to capture and rule the earth. But, at the end of chapter one, Cody appears to be in no position to keep Retik from achieving his goal.

Graber: How 'bout a ride to town, mister? Motorist: Sure. Hop in. Graber: There's a man in a flying suit chasing us. Step on it. Motorist: Huh?
[Commando Cody, Ted, and Joan are about to board ship for the moon] Commando Cody: I still think this is no trip for a woman. Joan Gilbert: Now don't start that again. You'll be very glad to have someone along who can cook your meals.

During a fight scene between George Wallace as Commando Cody and Clayton Moore as the villain Graber, Wallace zigged when he should have zagged, and Moore connected with him and broke his nose.
Made by Republic in the final years of serial production, it recycled the "rocketman suit" from the studio's wildly popular serial King of the Rocket Men (1949).
