Destination Moon

I was 9 years old, and I thought this was the greatest movie ever made.

I find this film fascinating, but a bit...slow.

I still like it, even though it's not the greatest movie...

9 is about the right age. Isaac Asimove particularly resented the stage Brooklynite.

Or even Asimov. He also resented misspellings of his name.

Since I was 9 and had never been out of Texas, I loved the stage Brooklynite.

Nancy Wilson had a nice pop-jazz song which stole its title.

Two years later, Jerry Lewis would've had a lock on the role.

T Mason said...

A bit earlier than Wilson, actually. Dinah Washington and Nat King Cole recorded it...Washington's, obviously, was the version I was thinking of:

A nice version, all right.
