12 to the Moon (1960 Full Film)


The ISO (International Space Order) has an opportunity to achieve its goal of placing a manned flight and landing on the moon.  By doing so they can declare the moon as “International territory”.  Lunar Eagle 1 will carry aboard her 12 people from around the world, all top-scientists in their prospective fields.  And for some reason, a couple of cats.  John Anderson commands the mission.

What happens when scientists from all over the planet get together for the common good?  Peace and harmony or does all hell break out.  Racial tensions are bound to flare in this pre-moon launch film.  Oh and I’m sure the aliens freezing the United States isn’t very helpful either.

12 to the Moon was produced by Fred Gebhardt and directed by David Bradley.  This film goes on to showcase the first moon landing, made by their 12 person crew.  The film was double billed with Battle in Outer Space and sometimes also 13 Ghosts.

The film spurred a novel (12 to the Moon) shortly after the film was made and was published by Fred Gebhardt under his pen name Robert A. Wise.  He had originally written the original script for the film but the movie was rewritten by DeWitt Bodeen.
