New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 28, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas The Right Stuff celebrates astronauts pioneer spirit New Brsunfett HuriHZfitung October 1M3 M By DOLORES BARCLAY Associated Press 7fo Sfwtf is a spectacular celebration of those heroes of the skies those fly Jocks who fought the demons of space to launch a new era in American air It is a sweeping epic that grabs adventure by the tail and rides it into a whirlwind of offthe wall humor and a curious confrontation with the stuff heros are made Philip Kaufmans adaptation of Tom Wolfes book needs a heavy pair of scissors to slice some of the unneeded footage off the 3hour and 11minute But the directorscreenwriter has done a masterful job in capturing the early days of test pilots and the beginnings of the Project Mercury space Caleb Deschanels photography captures the ambtr glows of the Mojave Desert and the twinkling mysteries of The special visual and sound effect arc meticulous One actually has the feeling of being propelled through the sound barrier or of dropping one stage of a rocket to be jetiaoned even fatter and further Into There are two tales in the telling here that of the seven astronauts who first took America into and that of the fiercely independent test pilots who shunned the tickertape parades and magazine covers to quietly conquer other And it is PuUtser Prizewinning playwright and actor Sam Shepard as test pilot Chuck Yeager the man who first broke the sound barrier who dominates the not Ed Harris as John Glenn or Dennis Quaid as Gordon The Yeager story is a more human story we never know if hell make But we know how the astronauts By far the most interesting and appealing astronaut is Scott Glenns Alan Glenn blends an almotit perverse sense of humor with a strong sense of self in the And Jeff who is finally getting the attention he so well is marvelous as a fumbling NASA Whether or not Kaufmans movie is any more accurate in its presentation of the American frenzy to catch up with the Soviet penetration of space than the Wolfe is not the primary question when viewing The Right Because fact or its a whopping good Rated Motion Picture of America

tragic life of the smalltown Iowa girl who at 17 achieved instant film went from glamorous highs to agonized then was found dead at 40 in victim of an apparent overdose of Her former novelist Romain later accused the FBI of driving her to suicide by planting a rumor that she was once pregnant by a member of the Black Panther In the FBI admitted that its Los Angeles bureau had suggested the rumor as part of a campaign which the FBI says it will never do again to discredit supporters of black But the agency also said it didnt know if the Seberg plan ever was put into Not a pretty tale any way you look at But a Tony and Oscarwinning that were not writing a a depressing What were writing I a very moving And its not just about Jean Its really about what happens in a system that can make a star and can break a And that you can dream the American but the minute you start dreaming another dream and if the FBI doesnt want you to dream that dream they come after So its really about a period
