Based on an original work by the great pre-science-fiction author Jules Verne, a brand new restoration of Jules Verne's Rocket To The Moon is released on DVD and Blu-ray 12th April 2021 from StudioCanal.

In Victorian England, the race to build, invent and discover is at its peak but results in many embarrassing and dangerous failures. In the US, meanwhile, when Phineas T. Barnum's (Burl Ives) "Greatest Show on Earth" burns to the ground, he heads to England with his star, Tom Thumb (Jimmy Clitheroe).

Barnum and Thumb are invited to a scientific lecture by Professor Von Bulow (Gert Fröbe) who plans to send a projectile to the Moon using a powerful new explosive he has invented. Barnum sets about finding the money to build a giant cannon to fire the projectile, carrying a reluctant Tom Thumb, however the spaceship designed by Sir Charles Dillworthy (Lionel Jeffries) proves useless since it does not have the capacity to return to earth.

Barnum then meets an American balloonist, Gaylord Sullivan (Troy Donohue), who has run off with his girlfriend on her wedding day to a wealthy Frenchman Henri (Edward De Souza). Gaylord claims that he has designed a projectile equipped for a round-trip and Henri offers to finance Gaylord's missile if he agrees to take Tom Thumb's place. Meanwhile, Dillworthy and his shady brother-in-law, Harry Washington-Smythe (Terry Thomas), plot to sabotage the moonship expedition but the saboteurs end up on a journey they hadn't bargained for.

Directed by Don Sharp (Rasputin: The Mad Monk), Jules Verne's Rocket To The Moon stars Oscar® winner Burl Ives (Cat On A Hit Tin Roof, The Big Country), Troy Donahue (A Summer Place) and Gert Fröbe (Goldfinger).
