British film icon Kenneth More stars opposite Shirley Anne Field and Michael Hordern in this madcap sci-fi satire from director Basil Dearden. Scripted by Oscar nominees Michael Relph and Bryan Forbes, Man in the Moon is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited aspect ratio. William Blood is Mr Normal, yet he's also rather strange: his immunity to illness and inability to worry enable him to make a living as a human guinea pig. A team of 'NASTI' scientists have an extraordinary mission lined up for William, however... rather than risk the lives of highly trained astronauts (or test animals!), they want to send him to the Moon...

Basil Dearden directs this sci-fi spoof starring Kenneth More as William Blood, a human guinea pig at a research centre set up to find a cure for the common cold. His incredible levels of immunity bring him to the attention of a team of space scientists, who decide he is the perfect candidate to become the first British astronaut to land on the moon. Cheerfully unaware of his destiny, William becomes the unwitting target of envious rival astronauts including the snooty Leo (Charles Gray).
