Description: Doris Wishman was the queen of the nudies, soft-core exploitation films made during the Sixties. Wishman wrote, directed, produced, cast, and edited all her films, and she was incredibly prolific and singular. Nude on the Moon is the story of scientists who travel to the moon only to find it inhabited by – gasp! – hordes of nude women.
Scientist Dr. Jeff Huntley inherits a fortune from his uncle and invests it in the development of a rocket ship, built with the assistance of his mentor, Dr. Nichols. After landing on the Moon, the pair discover a civilization of topless extraterrestrials led by a Moon Queen with telepathic powers. Enamored of Dr. Huntley, the Moon Queen allows the men to take photos of the nudists during their everyday activities. Their oxygen running low, the two are forced to return to Earth, realizing in the process that they've left their camera behind and have no proof of the aliens' existence. Jeff is dispirited to learn that nobody believes their trip succeeded, but his spirits are lifted when he sees the resemblance between Dr. Nichols's secretary, Cathy, and the Moon Queen. The movie ends as the two embrace, signaling the beginning of a new romance.

Review
I've seen hundreds of B-grade movies and have never seen one as hilariously "bad" as this one! There were parts I laughed harder at (the scientists talking to each other on CB's when they're right next to each other, the topless moongirl who eats the candy bar wrapper instead of the candy bar) than ANY other movie I can think of! Monty Python included!

Just to give you a little taste, when they leave Florida in their rocket and land on the moon, the "moon" looks exactly like Florida with palm trees and grass and trees and everything! Too funny for words.

If you are an enthusiast of B-grade cinema, I couldn't recommend a film more frighteningly "perfect" in everything movies of this type have to offer! Laughs galore, off-the-wall plot, horrendous scenery and costumes, awful acting... it's amazing!!
