The Right Stuff

1983

Philip Kaufman
Director

Intriguing, interesting and informative semi-historical look at the development of the space race back in the late 40s, early 50s which details the breaking of the sound barrier, as well as the first American astronauts in space. Chuck Yeager, the first pilot to break the sound barrier is featured in the film in a small cameo role. Well worth a look.
