Description & Details

Description

Directed by David Fairhead (SPITFIRE) ARMSTRONG is the definitive life story of Neil Armstrong: from his childhood in rural Ohio, through his near death experiences in aerial combat in the Korean War, pushing the limits as an experimental test pilot through to those historic first steps on the Moon - and the unwanted celebrity status that ensued. In his own words David said "Telling this story is a documentary filmmaker's dream. When Neil made his small step onto the lunar surface, it marked his transformation from mere man to global celebrity - something he spent the rest of his life trying to avoid. Through the testimony of colleagues, friends and family we outline his achievements and tell the seemingly familiar, yet little known tale of the First Man on the Moon." Made with the full support of his family, this dramatic, moving and insightful film includes previously unseen homemovie footage shot by Armstrong himself. Neil's own words provide the narration based on his rare interviews, writings and speeches, which are delivered by renowned actor and aviation enthusiast Harrison Ford. Featuring exclusive interviews with his family, fellow astronauts and aviators and those who knew him in his youth and later life, ARMSTRONG is the extraordinary and unique story of a quiet, determined man who became an aviator, astronaut, husband, father and reluctant hero.

A fantastic record of astronaut Neil Armstrongs family- and service life.

Having a great, almost life-long love of astronomy and spaceflight, this DVD advertised on the OnBuy.com website really caught my eye, so I just had to by it!
I certainly wasn't left disappointed! The entire DVD footage is very thoughtfully put together, following Neil's journey through life, from tiny tot, through his school, college and university life and onto military service life, then finally his astronaut career. All the time, this story is punctuated with all sorts of tales from family, friends and colleagues, all building the figure of a quiet, maybe sensitive man with a strong sense of duty and doing what was right. It almost paints a picture of the perfect human being, though I suspect that Mr Armstrong would never have agreed with that opinion. This DVD really did it for me; a fantastic, almost breathtaking illustration of what his life entailed, even in the early days of raising a handicapped daughter who unfortunately didn't live past three years of age and remained a great loving memory to Neil and his wife for all time. The quality of the original archive film snippets from his US Navy life, through Korea and onto the space programme is still breathtaking after all these years and includes a lot of footage that I hadn't seen before, especially regarding his near-disasterous demise when he and fellow astronaut Dave Scott's Gemini 8 very nearly span itself to death after some major instrument malfunction in the cold of space. It was only Armstrong's cool, calculated thinking that allowed him to 'fly' the spacraft out of danger, thus saving both astronauts' lives.
Added to all this fantastic feast of filmation is the spectacular and thoughtful backing music score. This is virtually there in the background throughout the movie and, in my eyes, makes all the difference.
Many thanks too for Speedyhen's super, fast service in getting the DVD to me within a day or two!
Buy this DVD. You certainly won't be disappointed, even if you're not a space buff.
