First of all I can't believe Ed Wood had nothing to do with this movie. There are just so many things wrong with it, it's hard to begin. Our adventure starts out on a rocket headed for the moon with a motley crew indeed.
A rocket is a projectile, much like a bullet. It has a trajectory and it goes until it runs out of fuel or it hits something. The crew flies this thing with the ease of a bumper car. This is only the beginning.
There is some sort of chemical spill when the rocket gets hit by an asteroid. Kip the strong silent type dons a chemical protective suit to take care of the spill with a fire extinguisher(?). Of course the two crew members that help him change into it (in front of a row of metal gym lockers no less) breathe in an unhealthy dose of chemicals as they lower Kip into the danger area.
The most pointed out stupidity of this flick is the infamous 'cigarette' scene. You see life must stay on the dark side of the moon. If not they'll be burned to a crisp. This is demonstrated by tossing a cigarette across the light/dark border.
The 'Cat Women' get their name from Kip, for that's what he calls them. Let me point out that Kip loves his pistol by the way. While exploring the moon, Kip pulls out his gun as a meteor comes crashing down. He finally uses it effectively against giant moon spiders and fleeing moon women whom he shoots in the back as they flee.
The commander Laird is a goofball x10. Marilyn Monroe fans will remember him as Tom Mckenzie from 'The Seven Year Itch'. His leadership skills are questionable as is his interaction concerning members of the fairer sex.
Round this out with awful special effects, no point, and a running time of under an hour and you have a real dud. So why the five stars? I happen to be a sucker for terrible movies. I love bad movies. This flick rates right up there with Plan 9 from Outer Space. Awful, awful, awful. I loved it.

"Cat-Women of the Moon" is a black and white remnant of the golden age of science fiction. Made in 1953, the film stars Sonny Tufts, Victor Jory, and Marie Windsor. The plot is simple yet ridiculous: a spacecraft carries astronauts to the moon, where the lone woman onboard is telepathically commanded to lead the crew to an ancient city of cat-women, who have no men. They need to go to earth to breed, and are clearly evil given their wily ways and "Teenagers From Outer Space" style skintight leotards.

Along the way the intrepid explorers have to battle enormous space tarantulas (complete with enormous string), invade ancient cities composed of matte paintings, and watch the completely ludicrous dance of the cat-women. The problem is that the atmosphere of the moon is being gradually destroyed (insert your own Al Gore joke here), which has (somehow) killed off all the moon men. Into this mess is thrust Kip, the leader of the expedition (Jory), although somehow copilot Sonny Tufts gets top billing. There is a vast quantity of otherworldly dialogue sprinkled throughout (e.g. "I love you Doug, yet I must kill you." and "I'll make a bargain with you. You take me to your rocket ship; I'll show you the cave of gold.") The film is only 64 minutes long, and at about the 63 minute mark I was wondering how it was going to end. the answer is "abruptly." Not only was the ending anticlimactic, it was just plain lame.

The film was originally released in 3-D, although this version is 2-D. You can still find the 3-D version on VHS, if you really want to.

This is a fun movie, I agree. However, I was disappointed with my VHS video, as only certain scenes are shown in 3D, NOT the entire film. (Robot Monster was entirely in 3Din this series.) My coverbox is exactly the same as the one pictured, but I'm wondering if Rhino put out more than one version. The analglyph 3D is unbearable, due in part to the fact that the up/down convergence is way off. I've seen segments of this film in Field-Sequential format on the Encounter in the Third Dimension DVD and it looks beautiful. If only someone would give it the treatment it deserves and put it out on DVD in both 2D and 3D field-sequential formats. If you don't know what field-sequential shutterglasses are, you haven't seen 3D video!!! See: The Ultimate 3D Collection. Now! Go look!

Original 1953 Black & White trailer shows why this movie was deemed "The most startling picture of the century!" 3-D glasses are not required. Enjoy!

OK; let's try. Take cheesy special effects, a totally illogical plot, bad scenery, Victor Jory and Sonny Tufts, for God's sake, then toss in Marie Windsor in all her bad girl/B movie glory, and finally all these women in leotards and black stockings that do strange dances. How could you not want to own it??

Marie Windsor (Swamp Women) is part of a lunar exploration team that discovers giant spiders and cat-women on the dark side of the moon. Said cat-women (played by the Hollywood Cover Girls) are the final remnants of a once flourishing society. Now they seek to steal the team's rocket and conquer the earth! CWOTM isn't a total loss, but it can be rough on normal-brained viewers! You must keep in mind that it was made in the 50s, at a cost of about 42¢. This will help get you through the majority of the dullness and jaw-shattering dialogue. The middle-aged earth males are about as heroic and verile as Homer Simpson, yet neither Ms. Windsor nor the Cat-women can resist them! It must be the moon's thin atmosphere. The black leotard-wearing cat-babes look more like beat club waitresses than alien marauders! Still, this movie has it's own imbecilic charm. Watch it w/ MESA OF LOST WOMEN, PREHISTORIC WOMEN, and WILD WOMEN OF WONGO for a complete estrogen explosion...
