Anatahan - 1953
Anatahan - Released May 17, 1953 (there is also a 1958 recut version). Directed by Josef von Sternberg
Director Sternberg wrote of this film:
"There are two minor factors equally decisive in the destiny of a film, one being proper circulating outlets and the other the time in which the work appears. To be ahead of the times is not much better than to be behind, and often worse." - from Fun in a Chinese Laundry, 1965, republished 1988 by Mercury House
Cat-Women on the Moon - 1953
Cat-Women on the Moon - Released Sept 3, 1953. Directed by Arthur Hilton.
Astronauts from earth land on the dark side of the moon and discover a race of "cat-women" who are what's left from a population that once ruled the surface millions of years before. From their ruined city they've been using a secret hypnotic power to lure the space explorers closer (primarily through mind-control over astronaut Marie Windsor as navigator Helen Salinger). Though the cat-women are hospitable and friendly, they've got a plan to steal the rocketship of the visiting earth-people and go to earth and rebuild their population (there's only eight of them left) and to, of course, rule (after-all, they're cats).
