First Men in the Moon

1964

Nathan Juran
Director
Columbia Pictures
Production Company

H.G. Wells tale of Victorian astronauts becomes a fun romp with the help of Ray Harryhausen's unique animated effects.

I remember being awed by this as a kid, this is an amazing film on the big screen in glorious Technicolor or rather LunaColor as described on the credits!

This one dedicated to Edward Judd, RIP.
