Woman in the Moon ★★½ By Rocket to the Moon; Girl in the Moon 1929

Assorted people embark on a trip to the moon and discover water, and an atmosphere, as well as gold. Lang's last silent outing is nothing next to “Metropolis,” with a rather lame plot (greedy trip bashers seek gold), but interesting as a vision of the future. Lang's predictions about space travel often hit the mark. Silent with music. 115m/B VHS, DVD . GE Klaus Pohl, Willy Fritsch, Gustav von Wagenheim, Gerda Maurus; D: Fritz Lang.
