Trip to the Moon Trip to the Moon Trip to the Moon
In this very early film by the pioneering filmmaker Georges Melies, several men fly to the moon in a bullet-like capsule fired from a giant cannon. To return to Earth, they push it off the edge of the moon. The space capsule returns to earth and falls into the ocean, where we see several adult newts swimming in the water. They filmed it with the newts in an aquarium between the camera and the background. They tossed some kind of bullet-shaped thing in to serve as the space capsule which bubbled up and tossed the newts around.
