Woman in the Moon is legendary German director Fritz Lang's first foray into so-called "serious" science fiction. In this film, Lang follows scientists and businessmen who want to travel to the moon to mine it for gold. Wolf Helius (Willy Fritsch) is an entrepreneur keen on taking advantage of breakthroughs in space travel technology. He seeks out scientist Professor George Manfeldt (Klaus Pohl), who has been scoffed at for his theories about not only space travel but the existence of gold in the moon. However, Helius is not the only party interested in Professor Manfeldt's ideas. Ruthless businessmen also want to make money from Manfeldt. Eventually, Helius and the businessmen agree to work together. They put together a team to travel to the moon and agree to split the profits. Once the group gets to the moon, things go awry leaving the explorers to make life or death decisions. Woman in the Moon is an exciting portrayal of space travel in early film that is not to be missed.moreless
