    Loved it as a kid in 1964 and I still love it.

    Classic Ray Harryhousen Dynamation kicks in when British Scientist Joseph Cavor(Lionel Jeffries) uses his anti-gravity substance to propel his spaceship to the Moon. Almost as an after fact do we finally get there only to find a wonderfully Dynamated World of Ray Harryhousen. Beneath the surface the Selenites rule with a strong hand, so to speak. Along for the ride are Kate Callender(Martha Hyer) and Arnold Bedford(Edward Judd). The real adventure begins under the Moons surface as we are treated to many exciting events. Beautifully filmed in Technicolor you will be amazed. One of Ray's Best! Some good science, Great Fantasy Story Telling ! 4.5 stars out of 5. Jeffries delivers a Splendid Performance !

    Some of the special effects are good, some very phony looking, but no matter what, they must have looked very good in 1964. Undeniably imaginative, and has a fascinating view of space travel. Entertaining and very well made. Ray Harryhausen's touch in films always is a plus. He was a special effects genius prior to computers.

    I remember this movie when I was growing up and how facincated I was with the plot. I have looked for the this movie on television over the years and it is one of few scifi movies I would watch again and again.

  • Good movie, but small image

    FMITM is a better than average offering of '60s SciFi with a consistent plot, excellent stop-motion animation, and competent actors. The only negative is TCM only shows this movie in Letterbox Format, so if your TV is under 25" you miss much of the detail.

  • the answer to a boring evening

    First Men In The Moon is very entertaining. This is pre-computer-generated-special-effects and a mix of not-so-scary creatures and humorous scenes and at the end a rather heart touching moment. You special effects freaks will get a kick out of the elevated chair hoisted to the ceiling with a not-too-disguised wire. Acting is really very good. Thumbs up!

  • TRUE SCIENCE FICTION AT ITS BEST!

    Although I have not seen this movie in a number of years, I must confess that it was, as far as I am concerened, a clasic. As I remember the acting was realy good and the story line, being from H G Wells, was excellent. There were true moments of great suspence. I would love to see this Clasic on the Cable TMC or The SCIFI channel.
