Desperate to land a man on the moon before Russia does, NASA hastily preps a would-be spaceman for a mission that would leave him alone in a lunar shelter for a year.
Robert Duvall joined Director Robert Altman in his breakout film MASH (1970). Two years after that, Duvall rejoined James Caan in Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather (1972). Incidentally, Coppola was the screenwriter for Patton (1970), the movie that beat out MASH (1970) for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Lee, you know, there can only be one first man on the moon. You don't have a reason, now. You wouldn't be a martyr - just a possible suicide.
Lee is supposed to be in a vacuum chamber checking out the lunar habitat module, but a close look at his space suit reveals he is wearing pants (made of impossibly thin material) and there is a gap between them and his boots where another thin layer of material is visible (socks?).
