Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer


I was old enough to remember the actual event ... and to literally hold my breath waiting for this re-entry!   Apollo 13 is a great film - but the final scene always both makes me cheer, and brings a lump to my throat.

The soundtrack is poor - couldn't find a better one ... but for those who don't know Jim Lovell was played by Tom Hanks ... and in this scene (at 3mins) that is the RL Jim Lovell greeting the actor Jim Lovell.
