| The X-15 Story
Having grown up near the Wind Tunnel Test Facilities mentioned in the film, I thought I'd purchase the DVD for archival purposes. It had some notable actors and I was surprised that Frank Sinatra had anything to do with it. Jimmy Stewart even did the narration.

The 1960's based film could have been a lot better, but it does show what it was like in the early part of the space race. The most disappointing aspect was the terrible screen format used by MGM. The 16:9 aspect ratio was too small on my 16:9 TV screen. I finally managed to compensate somewhat. MGM...what were you thinking? Couldn't you at least release a better print?

It would be nice to see a refresh of this movie with an improved script, better stock footage, new actors, and a more interesting story line. However, I don't discourage anyone from watching the film for it's historical coverage.
