I was never really attracted to this movie. It probably had to do with the title which I found, one hand, annoyingly patriotic and, on the other hand, just plain lame. But I kept saying this movie being recommended. It has been nominated for the best picture academy award, it is on the '1001 movies you must see before you die' and according Roger Ebert, it is even best movie from made in the 80's,... read more

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"For close-up shots of the reentry, no actual fire was used. The larger model capsule in these shots had liquid nitrogen pumped into it. This immediately evaporated, producing a fog of condensation, which escaped through a carefully placed ring of vents around the base of the capsule to form a flame-like pattern all around it. Then, to make the color right, the effect was simply filmed in orange light. Sam Shepard, who played legendary pilot Chuck Yeager, is actually afraid of flying. Some we"

In this case, I think it was worth have a look.

Personally, I think it is a rather weird movie. The begin is rather awesome and uplifiting focusing on Yeager, greatly played by Sam Shephard. But this awesome character is dropped after 45 minutes and the movie then shift focus and pay mainly attention to the first American astronauts. Then, the story, at the same time” read more

100 Essential Male Film Performances (99 movies items)

"Ed Harris Harris’s performance as John Glenn in The Right Stuff is one of the finest supporting turns of the ‘80s. Harris has always been an interesting and dynamic character actor, and in the mold Christopher Walken, Michael Caine or his Stuff co-star Sam Shepard, Harris has the unique ability to turn out a strong performance in even the most baneful or overloaded of films. But when Harris has a part in a strong, meaty film like Kaufman’s, he simply shines. Harris is John Glenn, the first"
