First Men in the Moon (1964)
In 1964, a multinational lunar expedition sponsored by the United Nations lands on the Moon. The astronauts believe they are the first lunar explorers, but they quickly discover a Union Jack flag on the lunar surface and a note mentioning Katherine Callender. The note claims the Moon for Queen Victoria, revealing that a British expedition actually preceded them by 65 years. The film follows the investigation team’s quest to find the last survivor of the Victorian crew, Arnold Bedford. Through flashback, Bedford recounts his extraordinary journey to the Moon in 1899, involving an inventor named Joseph Cavor and a mysterious substance called Cavorite that defies gravity. As they explore the Moon, they encounter unexpected challenges and unearth secrets hidden beneath its surface. “First Men in the Moon” blends contemporary space race excitement with a captivating Victorian-era adventure.
