An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Lobby Card #6 (measures 11" x 14") (Learn More)

Destination Moon, the 1950 Irving Pichel science fiction (sci-fi) thriller ("Two years in the making!"; "See the screen's most heart-breaking farewell! Would you let your man fly to the moon?"; "See the pull of gravity crush them deep into their crash-couches as the space ship takes off as 32000 feet a second!"; "See man's greatest thrill as he finally sets foot on the moon!"; produced by George Pal; based on an original book and screenplay by Robert A. Heinlein, the superlatively talented science fiction writer who gave Hollywood a try and quit when he found they did not care about scientific accuracy, and that, under the Hollywood system at that time, promises were often made to writers, both financially and creatively, that were not kept!) starring John Archer, Warner Anderson, Tom Powers, Dick Wesson, and Erin O'Brien-Moore. Note that Robert Heinlein had become friendly with director Fritz Lang during World War II, and the two had planned to make a "space" movie together! But the project fell apart when Heinlein realized that Lang really wanted to have complete control of the project, which Heinlein would not accept, and he ended up signing a deal with George Pal, and that was still disappointing to him, and he never received all of the money he was promised either. But one wonders what that "Heinlein/Fritz Lang" movie would have been like! Also, Note that this movie was one of the very first of the 1950s science fiction movies (it would have been the first but production delays allowed Rocket Ship X-M to beat it), and it intended to accurately portray the first moon landing; at the time, people considered it wild science fiction, and yet it became science fact within 20 years!
