I remember the movie - The Right Stuff.

I vaguely remember reading the book as well - but the movie stands out much more in my mind.

I can still remember how hard I was laughing as I watched those Mercury astronauts going through their medical and physical exams!! I seem to remember a young Dennis Quaid, and a younger Ed Harris in that movie..

The movie came out in 1983!!  Thats 35 years ago!! Gosh I must be getting old!!  Congrats on connecting Mr Wolfe to the tree.

Yep, Robynne, from IMDB (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086197/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1) Quaid and Harris were in the cast.
