"The Right Stuff" is a movie based on the early history of space by Tom Wolfe. It's a long movie, some three hours and thirteen minutes, but worth it. The span of time is from 1947 when Chuck Yeager(Sam Shepherd) who broke the sound barrier to the American Mercury astronauts and back to Yeager again. The film started with Yeager, then it go to The Mercury Astronauts and back to Yeager as the film ends. Philp Kraufman did a outstanding job of directing "the Right Stuff." He even wrote the screenplay. I also love the music score by Bill Conti. Ed Harris gave the strong pewrformance as John Glenn, the first astronaut to obit the Earth. An impressive cast round out the movie. this film should be seen in History classes, both high school and college. I love this movie. I saw it in 1984 and I can't get the music score out of my head.
