Le Voyage Dans La Lune

Nell O' Day..was an accomplished equestrian & B-movie actress of the 1930s/40s. I recently rented out a movie from the library titled "Sing Another Chorus" 1941 & her acting was so dazzling in it, i wanted to know more about her. She starred in quite a lot of westerns which is not my thing, so i don't think i will see those films. I always like to learn about other classic actresses that weren't that well known.

Watching Hugo, i was intrigued by the cult movie "Le Voyage Dans La Lune" by Georges Melies (he was portrayed by Ben Kingsley in the film). I didn't know that such a film really had been made until i did some research & came up with this (1902) A Trip to the Moon..(i just assumed that The Flaming Lips had created this little diddy for "Hugo")since Wayne Coyne had that Christmas On Mars project which has some similarities.

Also, the French band Air's new album is filled with music influenced by A Trip to the Moon.
