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.

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

  3. 9 is about the right age. Isaac Asimove particularly resented the stage Brooklynite.

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

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

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

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

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