Moon Pilot

Rated Not Rated (US) / G (Canada), Comedy

Moon Pilot is a high-spirited comedy tribute to the early days of space travel. After Charley the chimp undertakes a successful moon orbit, it's a race against time as a reluctant volunteer, Captain Richard Talbot, becomes next in line. The ferociously organized plans of his mission director go hysterically awry when a beautiful "spy" appears. She has a very important bit of data that could save the mission from failure, but the authorities quickly launch their own project, which is a complicated plan to keep astronaut and spy worlds apart, with side-splitting results.
