100 Meme - Film # 36

When you are old enough to remember a historical event, that was then turned into a great film, there is a double reason for watching.

I have already listed Moonshot as my #1 film ... another memorable historical event about Apollo 11 and the first moon landing. But this is two Apollo flights later - Apollo 13 ... and as you can see it was endorsed by the man himself -

Jim Lovell is also on the end of the film with a camio role.

I love the film, an amazing true story ... and it still gives me goosebumps when I watch it. (For any of you who don't know what I am talking about, Tom Hanks plays Jim Lovell on the true story of the ill-fated 13th Apollo mission bound for the moon. Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert were scheduled to fly Apollo 14, but are moved up to 13. It's 1970, and America have already achieved their lunar landing goal, so there's little interest in this "routine" flight.. until that is, things go very wrong, and prospects of a safe return fade.)
