Elfflame's rating:


 

For the purposes of this list, only movies dealing with space flight that were created before 1960 apply.

Based on the early ideas of what it would take to get into space, travel between worlds, etc.

Unlike most of the other lists in this set, there is no specific page at TV Tropes on this idea, but for a list of Space Tropes, look here. Do keep in mind that many of the tropes on that list were created in media that came after 1960.

Other movie suggestions welcome!
