The film influenced the lyrics of three songs on Shakespear's Sister 1992 album "Hormonally Yours": "Catwoman", "Moonchild" and their UK #1 hit "Stay". The video-clip to that latter song was also inspired by the film. See more »

The cigarette immediately bursts into flame and disintegrates. First, people and objects suffer no adverse effects from sunlight on the moon. Second, since the moon has no atmosphere there could not be any smoke or flames from the cigarette. See more »

In the early part of his career, Victor Jory appeared in some great films, starring alongside the likes of James Cagney and Errol Flynn. He even had a prominent role in Gone With the Wind. His co-starring role in Cat-Women of the Moon represents a descent to the depths in a film that resembles an amateur high school production. He must have been desperate. This is about as bad as it gets with a horrendously unimaginative miniature rocket and a plot that makes you wonder why they bothered. The absolute highlight occurs midway through the film when the head Cat Women slaps one of the underlings. The slap misses by some margin despite the sound effect of hand making contact with flesh. This scene is so bad that it has been mimicked by comedy writers ever since. The original print has been remastered for some unknown reason. Whoever made the decision to do that wasted their time.
