Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

A small army of artistes, mechanical, acrobatic and comic combined to make the fantastical film 'Trip to the Moon'. It is a remarkable film, to be enjoyed by young and old alike. Bonnie Goodwin's piccaninnies dance the cake walk that earns great applause. One of them manages to dance while his body is at right angles to his legs.
