Pervye na Lune (2005)

Pervye na Lune AKA First on the Moon is a 2005 Russian mockumentary about a fictional 1930s Soviet Moon landing. The film, which went on to win many awards, was the debut of the director Aleksei Fedorchenko.


Crack in the World (1965)

Crack in the World is a disaster movie about scientists who launch a rocket into the Earth's core to research its geothermal energy and accidentally unleash a cataclysmic destruction upon the world. Its an American production, shot in Spain over a seven week period and has absolutely no spacesuits in it...
However the more eagle-eyed amongst you will recognise the helmets seen here on these volcanologists as the Men in to Space helmets which are seen repeatedly popping up in other productions through the 60s, 70s and 80s ....and this is just one more.

Cheers for the find Dave
