The Right Stuff (1983) - Full Length - Free Movie Stream on YouTube
The original US Mercury 7 astronauts and their macho, seat-of-the-pants approach to the space program.
Tom Wolfe'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 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.Written by John Vogel
