'The Right Stuff' is on HBO right now. It's always been one of my favorite films. Did anyone else read that article where Zack Snyder referenced it and Man Of Steel? Anyway, I cant ever not watch it when it's on tv.

I love "The Right Stuff" and its cinematography. I've seen it many, many times.  Since it covered the Mercury program, I also studied it as a reference for "Astronaut Farmer", as seen in these frames:

I'm very fortunate to have both projected and watched an original 70mm print of this fantastic film. Unfortunately that particular print is now beginning to suffer from vinegar syndrome, a great pity indeed. The photography is breathtaking and complements the film wonderfully.

 

Plus Bill Conti's fantastic score benefits greatly from being heard in six-track mag :D

 

Interestingly, given the use of NASA 16mm footage in places, it's also one of the very few times you'll see 16 > 35 > 70mm blow-up.

It's one of the great American films of all time, in my opinion.  A real masterpiece.  I'm just sorry it didn't do well enough to keep The Ladd Company cranking out more great films.
