Le_Voyage_dans_la_lune A Trip to the Moon (FrenchVoyage dans la Lune)[a] is a 1902 French silent film directed by Georges Méliès. Inspired by a wide variety of sources,[5] it follows a group of astronomers who travel to the Moon in a cannon-propelled capsule, explore the Moon’s surface, escape from an underground group of Selenites (lunar inhabitants), and return in a splashdown to Earth with a captive Selenite in tow.[6] An internationally popular success at the time of its release,[7] it is the best-known of the hundreds of films made by Méliès, and the moment in which the capsule lands in the Moon’s eye remains one of the most iconic images in the history of cinema.[8] It was named one of the 100 greatest films of the 20th century by The Village Voice, ranking at #84,[9] and in 2002 it became the first work designated as a UNESCO World Heritage film.   Voyageplanetprehistoricwomen

Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women
Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women is a 1968 science fiction film directed by Peter Bogdanovich. The film is an adapted version of Curtis Harrington‘s Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet, which in turn is adapted from the Russian 1962 feature Planeta Burby Pavel Klushantsev. No footage from Planeta Bur appears in Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women that did not appear inVoyage to the Prehistoric Planet, and the dubbing is the same.[1] In the United States, this film is in the public domain.
