Rocketship X-M (also known as Expedition Moon and originally as Rocketship Expedition Moon) is a 1950 American black and white science fiction film, the first outer space adventure of the post-World War II era. Because production issues had delayed the release of George Pal’s high-profile Destination Moon, this feature film from Lippert Pictures, produced and directed by Kurt Neumann, was quickly shot in just 18 days, on a $94,000 budget; it was then rushed into movie theaters 25 days before the Pal film, while taking full advantage of Destination Moon’s high-profile national publicity.
