Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

This documentary utilizes the official film footage taken by NASA and the astronauts during various Apollo missions. The footage was blown up to 35mm without a loss of visual quality. Director Al Reinert has done an excellent job of assembling a coherent documentary from all the available material. The narration includes the actual voices and words of the astronauts themselves. One reviewer called this the most expensive film ever made, referring to the many billions of dollars that went into the moon landing program. This footage was extensively mined by Ron Howard for his (Apollo 13, so it may seem familiar. For All Mankind features a score by experimental rock composer Brian Eno.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

Trivia

  • There is a shot of the moon appearing in the window of the capsule. Director Al Reinert says there was no shot available of the moon showing in the window of the command module, so a film crew went down to the Johnson Space Center, pasted a photo of the moon on a hatch cover at the museum, and filmed it to illustrate astronaut Ken Mattingly's description of what he saw in his flight.
