Set just after the U.S. Civil War, businessman and inventor Victor Barbicane (Joseph Cotten) invents a new source of power called Power X. He plans to use it to power rockets, and to show its potential he plans to send a projectile to the moon. Joining him for the trip are his assistant Ben Sharpe (Don Dubbins), Barbicane's arch-rival Stuyvesant Nicholl (George Sanders), and Nicholl's daughter Virginia (Debra Paget).
