Two scientists cash in on one’s
inherited fortune, and finance their own trip to the moon. And what surprises
they find! Blue skies, lush vegetation, identical gravity, gold ingots… But
they also discover a civilization of telepathic “moonatics” who look exactly
like us – except for two key differences.
All of them have pipe-cleaner
antennae attached to plastic hairbands…andeveryone is topless all the time! Naturally, our intrepid duo must investigate
– purely in the interest of science. Of course.
“Nude on the Moon” is almost
Woodian in its ineptitude. Yes, you shouldn’t expect much more than cheese from
these things – but the astronauts’ flight suits seem to be leftovers from a
Middle Ages picture. Their helmets are not airtight (really just buckets on
their heads) and they keep the faceplates raised most of the time. Their
quarter-million-mile trip takes just two hours. Inside the ship, they must
communicate with each via mics and headsets…while seated next to each other!
And let’s not forget…the queen’s…breathy…and…halting….telepathic…communicationnnnn……
You’ll find many, many more
mistakes; you might to keep want a pad and pencil handy, to keep track.
“Moon Doll” is crooned by Ralph
Young, who later had a quite successful career after teaming up with Tony
Sandler. Doc Severinsen arranged the score (which isn't half-bad) but, despite urban legends, does not
appear in it.

Ahead of it's time
I think it's refreshing to see a film with attractive, benevolent extraterrestrials. Makes a very welcome change from the "humans vs aliens" type films that the film industry often produces.
Although I must admit, the song "Moon Doll" was played a few too many times....

Love the Helmets!
I love the space helmets that they use.
They are Remco Colonel McCauley toy helmets from the 1960 TV show "Men in Space" I got one for Christmas that year! You could tell that their heads barely fit inside because they were made for kids!

So Bad It's Good
Nude On The Moon has to be the cheesist movie ever made. The only movies that would be close are Ed Wood's. And therein lies it's beauty like a Wood film it's so uncaringly bad it's good.
In this film the moon is located in the Coral Castle in Homestead Florida and it's populated by half nude women. You could skip the first half until we get to the meat of the matter but lovers of bad film will want to take in the whole thing.

I'm pretty sure this is where Elvis went.
This movie 'idea' is so strange, particularly for 1960, that it had to have come from a few college kids sitting around and smoking the wacky weed with with their hipster prof.
It gets an 'A' for effort. Fairly ridiculous, but still fun. And totally original in its, uh, bizzarity.
