Rocky Jones, Space Ranger: Crash of the Moons (1954)

An American science fiction directed by Hollingsworth Morse.
A set of moons attached by an atmospheric belt enter a solar system and cause problems for the people there. After the narrow escape of a space station, the moons begin their collision course with another moon. The leader of the 3rd moon is hostile and is unwilling to accept outside help.
This was pretty hokey. The science ideas involved were absurd. Such is the way with '50s science fiction. Being part of a television series, the characters were already known to the audience and not developed in this film. The plot was dependant upon the absurd science ignorance of the 1950s. Production value seemed alright to me. The spaceships looked a little bit small and the landing and takeoff scenes could easily have been recycled. Overall, it was mildly amusing. I rate it o.k.
