Jules Verne's Rocket to the Moon (DVD)
Burl Ives and Dennis Price star in this brilliant movie. After fleeing his debts back home Ives sets up shop in England in the 19 Century. He then convinces a group of Brits to fund a rocket to the moon.
The group is headed up by a wealthy lord (Price) and the plan is to launch it via a gigantic gun barrel. Foreign spies and saboteurs are on hand though to ensure that the zany project is doomed to fail. Great, great fun.
