A chronicle of the original Mercury astronauts in the formation of America’s space program: Alan Shepherd, the first American in space; Gus Grissom, the benighted astronaut for whom nothing works out as planned; John Glenn, the straight-arrow ‘boy scout’ of the bunch who was the first American to orbit the earth; and the remaining pilots: Deke Slayton, Scott Carpenter, Wally Schirra, and Gordon Cooper.

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: The performances, especially by Scott Glenn. The cinematography. It’s a epically well made film. The soundtrack for The Right Stuff. It’s one of the best films, about the space race. Con: It can be considered overly patriotic, for some."

"First viewing - June 20th HBO Max I really wish they'd cut this down a bit as there are too many threads to sustain & it doesn't wrap them all up very satisfactorily, resulting in an ending that doesn't stick. The attention to detail impresses though, & I'm glad it included some touches of humor to help it be more palatable. Plus the cast is just a murderer's row.
