“What you are watching now is the separation and jettison of the aft inner stage, recorded on what has to be considered some of the most sensationally beautiful film footage ever taken.”
A lot of the NASA films in this exhibit feature some pretty quotable lines, but the narrator for this short film really hams it up with the kind of hyperbole that was stereotypical in this era of educational and industrial film. This short film about the Apollo 4 mission offers a nice summary of the highlights of the mission, from liftoff to splashdown.
