The film begins with a brief narration about man's exploration of the stars and then quickly cuts to a rocket blasting off and the crew inside evidently suffering from the strain and G-forces of the liftoff (either that or maybe it was a bad meal). Outside the window we see some stock footage of the view from early spacecraft entering orbit with the earth spinning off into the distance below. The control center frantically tries to contact the space ship numerous times as it speeds away from the earth and the crew slowly regains the ability to get out of their cots and move about the ship. The voice from the control center is actually kind of funny at times, I'm not sure if it was intentional or not. Once everyone is up and about the first thing Helen (Windsor) does is get out a compact and comb to fix her hair.
I've definitely seen worse and I do see myself watching Cat-Women Of The Moon again at some point.
