A wonderful documentary, a must watch
21 November 2020 | by jakehSee all my reviews

Just finished watching this documentary and was quite amazed to see footage that I had not seen before. The additional Tom Wolf dialogue added much and gave this viewer a glimpse into how he managed to write "The Right Stuff."

A word that comes to mind when I finished viewing is the word 'transfixed.' The entire documentary moves rather rapidly through the Mercury program, there were no dead spots.

Having seen just about all of the documentaries on the NASA space program, this particular documentary went even further than many of previous documentaries with behind the scenes videos and interviews, some quite rare and seldom, if ever, seen. A splendid video encapsulation of the early space program and the courageous men and women that comprised that program.
