Summary An early silent film describing a journey by rocket ship to the moon. Rather than a flight of pure fantasy, director Fritz Lang conceived a modernized "trip to the Moon" grounded in state-of-the-art astrophysics & spiced with romance and espionage. One of the most influential science fiction films of its era, in many respects technically accurate.
