Cat-Women of the Moon

This imaginatively conceived and produced science-fiction yarn [an original story by producers Zimbalist and Rabin] takes the earth-to-moon premise and embellishes it with a civilization of cat-women on the moon. Femmes, 2 million years ahead of Earth's civilization, very nearly wreck the earthmen's plans to return to their home base, in a scheme to fly the rocket ship back to Earth themselves and eventually control this orbit. They use Marie Windsor, navigator on the flight, by making contact with her mentally before the constellation jaunt.

Cast ably portray their respective roles. Sonny Tufts is commander of the expedition, Victor Jory his co-pilot, and Bill Phipps and Doug Fowley are other members of party with Windsor. Carol Brewster is head of the cat-women, an enticing wench, and Susan Morrow also scores as a moon femme.

Arthur Hilton makes his direction count in catching the spirit of the theme, and art direction is far above average for a film of this calibre. William Whitley’s 3-D photography provides the proper eerie quality.
