There is a shot of the moon appearing in the window of the capsule. Director Al Reinert says there was no shot available of the moon showing in the window of the command module, so a film crew went down to the Johnson Space Center, pasted a photo of the moon on a hatch cover at the museum, and filmed it to illustrate astronaut Ken Mattingly's description of what he saw in his flight.
Himself - capsule communicator:
Roger. Guys, I've got the word you wanted to hear: You are Go for TLI
Himself - capsule communicator: ; you're go for the Moon.
When showing the scenes of trans-lunar injection (firing the rocket to leave earth orbit for the moon), scenes of a Gemini spacecraft reentering the atmosphere are shown instead.
