I just noticed that there appeared to be a bit of a romance between Hideko and...one of the guys. I don't know his name, but there were a few little scenes that had them together and it seemed to be flirtatious to me (I'm not good at noticing those things, though.)

Am I crazy? Actually, if I'm right, I'm actually impressed because, not only was it subtle, it was a romance between a white man and a Japanese woman. That probably wasn't normal back in the 50s.

Is drawing sticks really the best way to pick who goes on the suicide mission? Shouldn't it be who's the most suited for the kind of thing? If not, shouldn't the oldest people in the room go? I just feel really bad for the young guy. I guess it's kind of cool that the old German dude went and kind of made up for the sins of his father.

The Japanese woman translating the alien language actually isn't as stupid as it seems.

First of all, if the moon people had any long-forgotten contact with the Earth, it would make sense for them to have knowledge of one of the most ancient and widespread written languages on the planet, like Chinese.

Further, it is proper to assume that a native Japanese speaker could read Chinese. Japan makes use of an alphabet that is almost identical to the Chinese alphabet, which assigns one word to one letter. They are therefore able to read a Chinese text with perfect understanding, even though they would pronounce each word differently.

I remember in the mid-70's when I heard about the colonization of the moon starting in 1980. I invested my $15,000 to get my 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bathroom home on the moon. I am still waiting for them to get word back to me about when MY house is ready, but...

(just in case you might think I am actually stupid enough to spend that kind of money... 8-).. yeah... right)

The first time I saw this episode was on youtube. It had been chopped up into a bunch of videos of about 10 minutes each, and there was some guy who kept commenting on the video segments that this movie was a great, classic movie and that MST3k should be ashamed that they mocked it. I couldn't help but notice, though, that he stopped saying that when it got to the part about the "invisible electro-magnetic ray screen" on their helmets. I think even he (whoever he was) had to admit that that was pretty stupid.

Tom Servo's riff to "What's Opera, Doc?" at 14:35 was nice, but he got the line wrong. In the cartoon "What's Opera, Doc?", Elemr Fudd says "...with my spear and magic helmet" not, "...with my sword and magic helmet". Nice try, though. I'll give you credit for at least making a reference to that cartoon.

I just realized for about the first time that there are two old guys: a Russian and a German. I had always conflated the two into one old guy who burned his hands, had a heart attack and whose father was a Nazi.

It's kind of surprising for a movie from the fifties to portray a Russian as a good guy who stops the Frenchman from attempting to destroy America. I would have expected the script to have written a Russian to be the bad guy who tries to sabotage the bomb to wipe out America.

I want to strangle that Jewish guy who won't shut up about Nazis and the holocaust and blames every single thing on the German guy just for being German. From the very beginning of the movie, long before he learns that the guy's dad was a Nazi, he is already blaming everything on him and insists on mentioning Nazis and "his people" any chance he gets. He even blames the German guy for faking the messages from the moon people. If someone sneezed, he would turn to the German guy and accuse him of somehow having something to do with it.

Fun trivia: The man in the short ("Oh! It's you!") is Marc Breaux, who was a choreographer. His film credits include Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, but from what I could find he mostly did Broadway shows, appearing in a few of them as well. Just thought that was kinda cool ;)
