Radar Men from the Moon 1952

Strategic targets on Earth are being destroyed by an unknown weapon. Government security head Henderson suspects it's an "atomic ray" originating from the moon! He assigns Commando Cody, scientist and man of action with a secret flying suit, to investigate. Soon, Cody is battling Earth thugs in the pay of Krog the moon man and making trips in his experimental rocket to the moon itself, in a perilous and all but singlehanded effort to thwart the planned invasion of Earth.

Film Trivia

Copyright lapsed and was not renewed, so this film is now in the public domain.
During a fight scene between George Wallace as Commando Cody and Clayton Moore as the villain Graber, Wallace zigged when he should have zagged, and Moore connected with him and broke his nose.
Made by Republic in the final years of serial production, it recycled the "rocketman suit" from the studio's wildly popular serial King of the Rocket Men (1949).
Set builder and prop maker Eugene Hilchey found the miniature model of the space ship used in this film at the CBS Studio Center (formerly the Republic Studio) sometime in the 1960s.
The clear rocket-shaped prop in Retik's moon lab previously appeared in Flight to Mars (1951).
