5.0 out of 5 stars Great documentary, and great book too!!!, 13 Nov 2007
This review is from: In The Shadow Of The Moon [DVD] (DVD)
I thought this documentary was a wonderful introduction to the Apollo moon landings, really showing the human side of the experience and providing a great general overview of the achievements. I saw it on the movie screen and highly recommend it.

I also really liked the 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 Soviets 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.

Highly recommend both book and movie, and suggest experiencing both!!!!!

Thanks, I loved the movie too - really breathtaking, and a whole new human look at those amazing events of the 60's and early 70's.
I am intrigued to hear of the book - I think another purchase is in order! Thanks for the tip...

I agree, the book "In the Shadow of the Moon" by Burgess and French is a wonderful complement to the movie, and I think you will like it a lot.
I always enjoy reading your reviews, and look forward to reading your review of the book too!
