Storyline

12 To The Moon,  An international team embarks on an expedition to the moon in an uncommonly spacious rocketship. There they encounter a faceless alien intelligence who conclude that the human race is too …Land on the moon with the first intrepid astronauts!

Not Great…but not bad , either !

12 To The Moon, I remember having seen “12 to the Moon” in theatrical release in the 1960’s, the last hurrah of the matinees on Saturdays. While many of the “gen-X-ers” would not truly understand the times and feelings of the era, we “baby-boomers” were there, and shared in the fun and excitement of the times, and the thrill of going into a theater as a young person to see even a not-so-good sci-fi flick. “12 To The Moon” was, as I recall, another one of those “dislocated dramas”. By that I mean–it took place on the Moon, but concentrated more on human elements than on actual science. It did not take itself seriously, and was un-ashamedly released strictly for entertainment value, as were 95% of the flicks of that era. The US had not yet conquered space, let alone the moon, in 1960. It was an era of expectation, anticipation, and discovery. The scene that still haunts me from the film is the ill-fated space voyager who dies in a form of “lunar-quicksand”. The others are virtually helpless to assist their fellow traveler. There is a warmth and an empathy present in the sci-fi flicks of that era that is not present in to-day’s “in your face” media and world. In those days, “attitude on a stick” was equated with a flawed, or even evil character, and required redemption on the part of the

“attitu-dee”..that is to say, the one who has the attitude. I don’t remember a lot of the film, not having seen it since I was in third or fourth grade. But audiences then got a lot from a little, and what was unspoken or not shown spoke volumes over that which was more conspicuous.
