Steve's Church-less Movie Of The Week ...

Yoinked from wikipedia and monster ...

"Cat-Women of the Moon is a 1953 Science fiction 3-D film directed by Arthur Hilton. It stars Sonny Tufts, Victor Jory and Marie Windsor. The musical score was composed by Elmer Bernstein.

This is one of several low budget films from the 1950s-1960s that share the same premise of a typically all-male expedition to a remote and isolated location where the males discover a race of women without men.

This film was excellently parodied in the cult film 'Amazon Women On The Moon.'

This film was originally released theatrically in 3-D and has been since shown in 3-D at The 3-D Film Expo at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre in 2003, and at the Historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco in 2006. Cat Women Of The Moon has since been released in 3-D on VHS and 2-D on DVD. As of 2007, The L.A. Connection improvisational comedy troupe regularly screens this film in its live 'Dub-a-vision' performances

William Phipps, who played Doug Smith in the film, told interviewer Tom Weaver, 'When I saw that spaceship set, I thought I was workin' for Soupy Sales! And that giant spider! They held it up with big ropes above us on the cave set and dropped it down on our heads. At the time, I thought it was the most outrageous, absurd thing in the world - how did spiders get on the Moon?! It was all just incredible - I thought, how can anybody put this in a movie? It's gonna ruin it!'

In the same interview William Phipps said that they ran out of money to end the movie. That last scene with the shooting was added in a couple of hours. with that voice over by Victor Jory saying, 'The Cat Woman are dead.'

Yes, it's terrible. Badly acted, fairly unimaginative, maybe even insulting to women...but somehow it remains fun and yes, watchable. Maybe because it's a 1953 throw back to an even earlier science fiction era? Maybe.

But then again, this one seems to be bad, simply awful, yet campy, cheesy and wonderfully nostalgic in it's own special sort of way."
