Due to some cosmic phenomenon not only is earth's runaway moon - including moonbase Alpha & its crew - duplicated, it also completely alters the course of the moon, & it soon approaches earth again.

Since the crew of Alpha don't know they have been duplicated, they all seem pretty happy that they are heading back for earth, & are actually about to reenter moon's regular orbit around eart ... all except for crewmember Regina (Judy Geeson), who seems to have weird memories of having resettled on earth years ago all of a sudden. Gradually she totally fgreaks out & dies, & only in post mortem can the moonbase's chief physician Helena Russell (Barbara Bain) find out Regina actually head 2 brains inside her little head ...

More fun stuff is expecting the moonbase crew though, like earth (all of a sudden) having a moon again, an exact replica of the moon they are on, including a moonbase (that was long abandoned though), & a crashed spaceship with the corpses of Alpha's commander Koenig (Martin Landau) & crack pilot Alan (Nick Tate). 6 that's not all, the duplicate moon is faster than the original moon, gradually catching up with it , with a crash being only hours away.

So Koenig (the live one), Alan (ditto) & doc Russel decide to go down to earth to the only spot where human life is possible, & they find the crew of the duplicate moon hav e settled here 5 years ago (but for some reason have reverted to the technical level of the stone age). Doc Russell even meets her other self from 5 years into the future, but the other self soon dies, & it becomes apparent that no two manifestations of the same being can exist at the same time on Alpha, so the crew of the moon that has newly arrived cannot come down (bugger), so they have to stay on Moon one until it crashes with Moon two ... & when it does, everything turns back to normal again, the moon is still lightyears away from earth & drifting even further away, & there are no two manifestations of the same person anywhere to be seen. Only some flowers doc Russell has plucked on earth prove that any of it has actually happened.

 

This is pretty much it, one of the funniest pieces of 1970's science fiction I can think of: an incredibly silly script acted out in no-nonsense style, a weird performance by Judy Geeson that can best be described at ingenious to the point of madness, wonderfully warped 70's sets & costumes & fittingly stupid dialogues. Nope, despite it might have been intended otherwise, this is not an intelligent, thoughtful story, but it has an absurd quality all of its own, that makes it hugely enjoyable.
