Crash of the Moons was edited together from episodes of the television series Rocky Jones, Space Ranger, a quintessential sci-fi TV adventure of the 1950s. This "rocket ships and ray guns" offering is better than average, thanks in no small part to a fair budget, and for having been recorded on film instead of kinescope. In this installment, a pair of populated "gypsy moons" threaten to collide with the planet Opheish. The planet's evil queen Cleolantra refuses the help of the United Worlds and plots to destroy both the moons and the Space Rangers. Patsy Parsons is wonderful as the evil queen and is more than a match for Richard Crane's heroic Rocky Jones. Early '50s effects and dated scientific concepts are just part of the charm. Granted, it is difficult to take a show with a character named "Winky" seriously, but plant tongue firmly in cheek and enjoy.
