Capricorn One (1977): Lest We Forget.

With all the “noise” generated by NASA Mars InSight lander landing, I think it’s time to remember these almost Mars heroes. Granted, the plot is at least tenuous and the idea of flying with Apollo hardware to Mars was simply silly, but the damn cool Stearman vs. OH-6 dogfight was just plain awesome. All in all, the whole package was entertaining enough for a very young kid then and a rusty old one now.

Boy, those hilariously oversized bubble helmets and the puffy unshapely spacesuits. El cheapo effort, at its worst.
