The Right Stuff
Posted by GMorrison on Thursday, May 17, 2018 2:46 AM

RIP Tom Wolfe.

In my opinion one of the best Cold War sories ever told, and certainly the best astronaut movie yet. 

Well maybe not better than 2001, but more present.

I watched the first half again this evening.

RIP Sam Shepard. RIP Kim Stanley.

FIFI.

Yes, a fabulous book, and well adapted to the big screen. One of my favorites in each medium.

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

Didn't know whether Right Stuff was a fluke or not, but tried others of his books.  He was the right stuff himself as a writer!

Love the movie and its musical score.

interesting that both the writer who wrote of him, and the actor who portrayed him, have both passed before Chuck Yeager.
