Movies Houstonians Love! film series presents: “The Right Stuff” directed by Philip Kaufman

Introduced by retired astronaut Colonel Terry Virts

Based on the best-selling book by Tom Wolfe, this Oscar-winning epic is about the race to put the first man on the moon. Four American Air Force test pilots (Scott Glenn, Ed Harris, Dennis Quaid, and Sam Shepard) are chosen as the bravest, the best, and the most daring—the men with “the right stuff.” Terry Virts says this movie inspired him to become an astronaut!

Terry Virts served as a U.S. Air Force test-fighter pilot and is a NASA veteran of two spaceflights. His seven months in space included piloting the Space Shuttle, commanding the International Space Station and three space walks. While in space he took more than 300,000 photos—more than on any other space mission.
