Moon location: Jupiters second moon, Io. Unique feature: For viewers nowadays, James Bond ( Sean Connery) and the late Peter Boyle ("Everybody Loves Raymond") dont scream "space actors." Otherwise, very "mining town"-ish. Moon moment : Murders on the moon, 28 in six months. The death scene in which a man exposes himself, disrobed, to "zero pressure atmosphere," is reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzeneggers scene on Mars in Total Recall. The air is sucked out and the guy freezes. Quickly.
