The Right Stuff (1983)

'Tom Wolfe (I)' (qv)'s book on the history of the U.S. Space program reads like a novel, and the film has that same fictional quality. It covers the breaking of the sound barrier by 'Chuck Yeager' (qv) to the Mercury 7 astronauts, showing that no one had a clue how to run a space program or how to select people to be in it. Thrilling, funny, charming and electrifying all at once. (Read More)
