Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Crash of Moons consists of three half-hour episodes from the mid-1950s science fiction TV show Rocky Jones, Space Ranger. Richard Crane stars as Jones, spaceship commander for the United Worlds. Scotty Beckett costars as obligatory comedy relief Winky, while Maurice Cass is Professor Newton and shapely Sally Mansfield is navigator Veda. The 39 Rocky Jones episodes were constructed cliffhanger style, enabling the producers to reissue them as 13 ersatz "feature films". Per its title, Crash of Moons concerns two inhabited planets which seem inexorably headed for an apocalyptic collision. The film boasts some impressive special effects-impressive, that is, by 1950s TV standards.
