Bevy of Beauties: Moon Maidens

Laurie Mitchell, Leslie Parrish, Pat Mowry, Tania Velia, Sanita Pelkey
and Lisa Simone in Missile to the Moon (1958)

Have you ever noticed how many 1950s sci-fi films seem to involve traveling to another planet and finding an underground civilization of beauty pageant winners in showgirl costumes and high heels who are desperate to breed with earthmen for some obscure and highly improbable reason?


  1. Yes, this seems pretty common. "Queen of Outer Space" Invasion of the Star Creatures" The Mole Men. and more I can't recall right now. Probably cause sci-fi movies attract a teenage male audience.
