1
00:00:09,125 --> 00:00:10,888
Jules Verne wrote many books.

2
00:00:11,561 --> 00:00:15,258
He was able to transfer
his soaring imagination to print.

3
00:00:16,232 --> 00:00:17,824
His predictions were bold.

4
00:00:18,234 --> 00:00:21,431
What he wrote was regarded
as fantastic fiction...

5
00:00:22,038 --> 00:00:24,029
but much of it has become fact.

6
00:00:25,008 --> 00:00:29,206
Flying machines,
submarines, television, rockets.

7
00:00:30,113 --> 00:00:33,344
But not even his imagination
could shrink the earth...

8
00:00:33,450 --> 00:00:35,179
to the point it has now reached.

9
00:00:35,385 --> 00:00:38,411
He wrote a book called
From the Earth to the Moon.

10
00:00:38,722 --> 00:00:41,919
And in Paris,
that authentic genius Georges Méliès...

11
00:00:42,292 --> 00:00:44,726
turned it into a movie, 35 millimeter...

12
00:00:45,161 --> 00:00:46,924
just as you're looking at it now.

13
00:00:47,197 --> 00:00:49,256
It was, of course, fantasy.

14
00:00:50,100 --> 00:00:52,898
But as of now,
no one has yet gone to the moon...

15
00:00:53,103 --> 00:00:55,094
to see whether Méliès was right.

16
00:00:55,438 --> 00:00:59,101
Here is the actual film
as Méliès' camera recorded it...

17
00:00:59,275 --> 00:01:00,970
at the turn of the century.

18
00:01:09,586 --> 00:01:12,350
I suppose that since man
began to walk upright...

19
00:01:12,589 --> 00:01:15,217
he has been interested in space and speed.

20
00:01:16,059 --> 00:01:20,189
He has wondered increasingly
about the planets he sees in the sky.

21
00:01:21,397 --> 00:01:25,834
The stretching fingertips of science
have moved him higher and faster...

22
00:01:25,969 --> 00:01:28,096
than man has ever moved before.

23
00:01:28,772 --> 00:01:32,230
One of Jules Verne's characters,
a fanatic and a dreamer...

24
00:01:32,475 --> 00:01:35,239
argues for the construction
of a rocket to the moon.

25
00:01:42,986 --> 00:01:46,717
After reasoned discourse,
the venture is launched.

26
00:01:53,930 --> 00:01:56,262
This is the first photographic dissolve.

27
00:02:03,740 --> 00:02:06,174
This is a do-it-yourself rocket.

28
00:03:16,613 --> 00:03:19,673
Rockets have changed.
Photography has changed.

29
00:03:19,849 --> 00:03:21,578
Costumes have changed.

30
00:03:22,018 --> 00:03:26,580
But some things remain unchanged,
even in Verne and Méliès' imagination.

31
00:04:27,984 --> 00:04:30,646
Jules Verne's rocket returns to the earth...

32
00:04:30,820 --> 00:04:34,586
a minor planet,
where fiction lags behind fact.

33
00:04:35,925 --> 00:04:37,688
Ten, nine...

34
00:04:38,027 --> 00:04:42,054
eight, seven, six, five...

35
00:04:42,298 --> 00:04:47,133
four, three, two, one. Fire!

36
00:05:09,525 --> 00:05:11,925
There is, in this power of destruction...

37
00:05:12,128 --> 00:05:13,891
also the promise of hope.

38
00:05:14,597 --> 00:05:18,055
A world of unlimited power
and limitless hope.

39
00:05:18,468 --> 00:05:21,995
Man has devised a method
of destroying most of humanity...

40
00:05:22,438 --> 00:05:26,670
or of lifting it up to high plateaus[...]
