Jules Verne’s Rocket to the Moon

Floundering Victorian sci-fi comedy in which the effects of Les ‘Vampire Circus’ Bowie vie with Dennis Price’s weird northern accent, as Burl Ives plays a moonshot-instigating, Phineas T Barnum, Gert Frobe an exploding German nutcase, Terry-Thomas and Lionel Jeffries, er, themselves, and Stratford Johns, Graham Stark and Jimmy Clitheroe – Jimmy Clitheroe! – fill out the bowler-hatted cast. Cheap fruity daftness for a damp afternoon.

    My grandad was the animal arranger on this, as this was made in Ireland, due to producer Harry AlanTowers’ eternal tax dodging skills.
