Editorial Reviews

In deep space, the Rangers make an amazing discovery - two moons locked in each other's orbit, forever hurtling through space. When Rocky lands on one of the wandering moons, he discovers that its inhabitants are at war with the other satellite. While Rocky tries to convince the two moons to settle their differences, a sinister plan is launched by his old enemy Cleolanta. Taking advantage of the Space Ranger's absence, she brings in a Rocky double to implement her plan to utterly destroy the Bureau of Space Affairs.

"Rocky Jones, Space Ranger" originally aired on television between 1953 and 1955, and later was re-edited into feature length-adventures. The three episodes that comprise "The Gypsy Moon" date from the show's first year and feature remarkable alien landscapes and some of the best visual effects of the series.

Oldies.com has been releasing the Rocky Jones series (classic SF from the 50s) on DVD--admittedly, only in the compilation versions rather than the TV episodes they originally were, but still, they've been releasing them.

This particular serial is one of the more entertaining ones, but to look at it, absolutely no quality control was performed. The video looks as though it was transferred directly from VHS (including frequent interference patterns when the picture brightens during the many explosions), the sound quality is uneven, and it's just a disappointment.

Here's hoping other Rocky Jones releases will be better-done; this one was disappointing in the extreme.

I was a big fan of the "Rocky Jones - Space Ranger" serials as a kid. I watched them religiously on Saturday mornings. They were the epitome of campy sci-fi. They had cheesy special efects, and the "science" was mostly wrong, but who cares. They were and are a lot of fun, and the moral is "Be a good person and one day you'll be a space ranger."

I loved watching this film. In many ways it is a preview for greater things to come such as "Star Trek." The film is unashamedly copied from the epic Greek classic. I liked the script as it not only is based on a classic, but there are several "Star Trek" episode ideas within the film.

Rocky (Richard Crane), our "Captain Kirk/Ulysses" is the leader of the group. He brokers peace between two warring moons. They use their primitive version of a universal translator, one which assumes everyone in the universe uses the same alphabet. Their ship is trapped in a magnetic field (tractor beam). The doors open and close by themselves and they have a viewing screen. The women wear short skirts and even aliens where their hair like it was the 1950's. They even had a mind sifter mounted on the wall used to control people.

The United World (Federation) is peaceful and extends to a number of planets. They are of course in conflict with the Klingons, or in this case the Orpheusians. Most likely their home planet is in the constellation of Orpheus.

The film by today's standards is campy. It is similar to an old Flash Gordon serial. Most people won't enjoy or appreciate this missing link in sci-fi evolution as much as I did. Might go good with the funny stuff Colorado.
