THE RIGHT STUFF (Released to Theaters USA 1983)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Right Stuff—wonderful—combines the story of the men who broke the sound barrier and the men who were first in space. The movie offers full value for the money spent as it gives three hours of movie time. WOW! Casting department made excellent choices. The timing, portrayal, and presentation are unusually well done. The writer, Tom Wolfe, coherently writes the story (see Ben Meyers International Movie Critics for a review of the documentary about Tom Wolfe and his professional life).  Look for appearances of Jeff Goldblum in the movie. This film is great to watch and makes a worthy addition to the home video library.
