Captain's Library & Theatre: DESTINATION MOON Conclusion

Four people.
One spaceship.
A race to the Moon to beat the Communists.
(Now you know where Stan Lee and Jack Kirby got the basic premise for The Fantastic Four!)
Surviving a perilous journey, the world's first astronauts reach the Moon and are about to land...
Trivia: John Archer (wealthy industrialist Jim Barnes) played wealthy playboy Lamont Cranston for a season (1944-45) on The Shadow radio show!
Dick Wesson (Joe Sweeney) made his film debut in Destination Moon. He acted in numerous war and western flicks, usually playing a "fish-out-of-water" comedy relief character. Dick became a writer-director-producer with numerous credits including Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction, and Maude!

Here's a couple of nifty treats for you...
First, the trailer for the flick...

..then the movie itself...
