H.G. Wells' Astounding Adventure in Dynamation!
Based on the HG Wells story. The world is delighted when a space craft containing a crew made up of the world's astronauts lands on the moon, they think for the first time. But the delight turns to shock when the astronauts discover an old British flag and a document declaring that the moon is taken for Queen Victoria proving that the astronauts were not the first men on the moon.

I love this movie for some reason. Effects were rotoscope. Its got great dry humor only the British can master. Its so satirical. Great 1960's period adaptation of the original wells book. Worked well as a movie. And staring out in the current age (late 60's) and then telling the story from one man's point of view years after I event happens. Great play with time.
