    A brand new restoration of JULES VERNE'S ROCKET TO THE MOON based on an original work by the great pre-science-fiction author Jules Verne, is a British comedy directed by Don Sharp (Rasputin: The Mad Monk) starring Oscar® winner Burl Ives (Cat On A Hit Tin Roof, The Big Country), Troy Donahue (A Summer Place) and Gert Fröbe (Goldfinger).

    Contestants from all over the world compete in a competition to be the first scientist to construct and launch a rocket to the moon. Phineas T. Barnum, the great American showman, comes to England to escape his creditors. Always on the lookout for an opportunity to make money, he enters the competition in an ambitious attempt to launch a rocket to the moon with the aid of a powerful, new explosive. Money troubles, spies and saboteurs ensure that the plan is doomed before it even starts.
