Product Details

Product Description

IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON is an intimate epic, which vividly communicates the daring and the danger, the pride and the passion, of this extraordinary era in American history. Between 1968 and 1972, the world watched in awe each time an American spacecraft voyaged to the Moon. Only 12 American men walked upon its surface and they remain the only human beings to have stood on another world. Now for the first, and very possibly the last, time, IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON combines archival material from the original NASA film footage, much of it never before seen, with interviews with the surviving astronauts, including Jim Lovell (Apollo 8 and 13), Dave Scott (Apollo 9 and 15), John Young (Apollo 10 and 16), Gene Cernan (Apollo 10 and 17), Mike Collins (Apollo 11), Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11), Alan Bean (Apollo 12), Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14), Charlie Duke (Apollo 16) and Harrison Schmitt (Apollo 17). The astronauts emerge as eloquent, witty, emotional and very human.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great documentary, and a great book as well ! Nov. 13 2007
I thought that this documentary was a truly wonderful introduction to the Apollo moon landings, showing the human side of the experience and providing a great general overview of the achievements. I saw it on the movie screen, and I highly recommend it.

I also really liked the impressive book of the same title, by C. Burgess and F. French, that not only covers the early Apollo flights, but also delves into the preceding flights, and what the Russian rivals were up to at that time. In the book, I learned about the early lives and early flights of these astronauts, and what it was like to be in the moment of flying the missions. In the movie, I learned what these guys look like today, and how they feel reflecting back on their experiences. Both film and book were perfect for their medium, and great accompaniments to each other.

I highly recommend both book and movie, and suggest experiencing both!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Excitement of Apollo Once More March 22 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As an "Apollo Kid" I was glued to the grainy TV images of the moon landing and all of the Apollo missions before and after. Forty years later, watching "In the Shadow of the Moon", the wonderment of it all is recalled, and it is just as good today as it was back then. The Apollo astronauts recount their stories and reflect on the program, now, in a very personal way. This is not really about the moon landings, but about the hearts and souls of the brave men who flew these missions. Their personal stories mixed with much reflective humor makes for the most amazing story that you can't tear yourself away from. It is a bit unfortunate that Neil Armstrong didn't participate in this landmark film, but all of the other guys make up for it. This was, and remains, an amazing adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent documentary Jan. 27 2014
By Nostalgia Guy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this 100 minute documentary. Informative and interesting, with the occasional tidbit that will make you appreciate those guys with the right stuff even more (for instance, did you know that Buzz Aldrin used to figure out complex ballistic trajectories as a hobby? For fun!). At the current price, I think it's very worthwhile.
