I have just re-visited Richard Donner’s 1961 classic X-15 movie. Saw it when I was a little boy in my hometown cinema -no, I’m not that old: they put old movies there- a long time ago. What a day!. I found then the movie just awesome; except for those unnecessary and silly love/family stories…
After all these years my opinion remains basically the same.
A cockpit equipped with one center-stick and 2 side-sticks, an aircraft of superlatives.
My best actin’ award goes -obviously- to the X-15,but 100 miles?!?…..yeah,right.
