Project Moon Base (1953) Download, Live Streaming and Movie Review.

This minor little early fifties space picture was compiled of episodes of an unsold TV series titled “Ring Around The Moon.” This explains the films awkward bifurcated structure. The producers claim they thought these episodes look so great, that they decided to release it as feature film instead. While this may be true, I think its more likely the producers couldn’t find a sponsor or a network that was interested. Which is a bit odd. For an early fifties T.V. show, this really doesn’t look all that bad when compared to other early fifties shows like “Rocky Jones: Space Ranger” or “Tom Corbett Space Cadett.” PROJECT MOON BASE (or “Ring Around the Moon.”) seems to have slightly higher production values and more ambitious special effects than other TV shows from the period. From watching this film, its seems there was an attempt to make something more adult than other shows on TV at the time. However, these sets and special effects must of looked inadequate when seen on the big screen even in 1953. There are some surprises here. The fact that the space commander is women is unusual for a film from the early fifties, although back in the early seventies when I first saw this film I didn’t think that was so odd. What did surprise me was at the end when the president is shown to be a woman. One enlightened soul in this forum called this film “sexist” and “paranoid.” I wouldn’t call a film that features a women as space station commander and a woman as president “sexist”, and I don’t see what is so paranoid about this film. Then again, maybe I’m clueless. Then again the term “paranoid” has been used by so many pedantic critics to describe just about every 1950’s sci fi/monster flick almost as if by rote. Perhaps the most unusual thing about PROJECT MOON BASE is some of the names in the credits. The name almost always mentioned is the famed science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlan, who is credited as co-writer. It’s a shame that this minor little film is one of the few times Heinlan ever worked on a film. The other name is Richard Talmadge who directed. Talmadge’s career goes back to the silent period where he was one the silent periods great stunt men. He also was a star back then in his own right. Over the years Talmadge, acted, directed, produced, wrote and worked as a unit director on all kinds of films. Over all, PROJECT MOON BASE is a rather tedious film. I recently watched it on video and sat through it with only minor interest. Unless your a fifties sci fi buff, or a fan of Heinlan, or interested in the career of Richard Talmadge, PROJECT MOON BASE will probably be rough going. It’s a minor curiosity, and a footnote in the career of Robert Heinlan.
