This fascinating look at the birth of America's space program and the first astronauts in space is presented in cinematic widescreen with stunning Dolby Digital sound and accompanied by a cosmic array of additional features including cast and crew commentaries, additional scenes, behind the scenes documentaries and more.
Epic and glorious were America's dreams to master the sky and journey into space. Also epic and glorious is this landmark movie about one adventurous test pilot, seven brave astronauts and the colourful era that forged their heroism: Philip Kaufman's (Quills, Unbearable Lightness of Being) spectacular film of Tom Wolfe's (Bonfire of the Vanities) The Right Stuff.
Winner of four Academy Awards, The Right Stuff chronicles the story of the pioneering Mercury astronauts: men names Shepard, Grissom, Glenn, Carpenter, Schirra, Cooper and Slayton, the first Americans to ride a primitive spacecraft solo into a new frontier. Preceding them in the history books was the legendary Chuck Yaeger who, far removed from the awesome media spotlight that would focus on the "spacemen" a decade later, became the first man to break the sound barrier piloting the fabled X-1.
Sam Shepard (as Yaeger), Ed Harris, Dennis Quaid, Barabara Hershey, Fred Ward and others in a marvellous ensemble cast make this sweeping saga funny, touching and bracingly human, like the movie that contains them, they embody The Right Stuff of exciting entertainment.
