Soon to be a major motion picture, First Man by James Hansen offers the only authorized glimpse into the life of America's most famous astronaut, Neil Armstrong - the man whose "one small step" changed history. In First Man, Hansen explores the life of Neil Armstrong. Based on over 50 hours of interviews with the intensely private Armstrong, who also gave Hansen exclusive access to private documents and family sources, this "magnificent panorama of the second half of the American twentieth century" (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review) is an unparalleled biography of an American icon. When Apollo 11 touched down on the moon's surface in 1969, the first man on the moon became a legend. Hansen vividly recreates Armstrong's career in flying, from his seventy-eight combat missions as a naval aviator flying over North Korea to his formative transatmospheric flights in the rocket-powered X-15 to his piloting Gemini VIII to the first-ever docking in space. For a pilot who cared more about flying to the Moon than he did about walking on it, Hansen asserts, Armstrong's storied vocation exacted a dear personal toll, paid in kind by his wife and children. In the years since the Moon landing, rumors swirled around Armstrong concerning his dreams of space travel, his religious beliefs, and his private life. This book reveals the man behind the myth. In a penetrating exploration of American hero worship, Hansen addresses the complex legacy of the First Man, as an astronaut and as an individual. In First Man, the personal, technological, epic, and iconic blend to form the portrait of a great but reluctant hero who will forever be known as history's most famous space traveler.

Das Schicksal ruft friedliche Bürger von der Arbeit in der Fabrik oder im Büro und aus dem Kreis der Familie in die unerbittlichen Kämpfe des koreanischen Krieges. Sie werden dort nicht zu begeisterten Soldaten, die das Glück des Alltagslebens vergessen, sondern zu Männern, die wissen, daß sie eine harte Pflicht erfüllen müssen. Die Tragik der Anonymität, in die die unbekannten Helden an den Fronten der großen Weltgegensätze geraten, ihr Aufbäumen gegen die Vergeßlichkeit der Umwelt, ihre Ängste, ihr Lebenswille und ihr einsames Ende bleiben unvergeßlich.

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures' First Man, the riveting story of NASA's mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.

First Man: The Annotated Screenplay is the official companion to the movie, and features a wealth of stunning photography, alongside the full shooting script. Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Josh Singer (Spotlight) and James R. Hansen, whose book First Man is the only authorized biography of Armstrong, provide an in-depth commentary on the challenges of dramatizing a fact-based historical motion picture. Exclusive annotations separate those facts from the dramatic fictions the filmmakers utilized, as well as explain the overarching dramatic choices made in telling the story of the man behind the icon.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Sean Penn wurde immer wieder als unkonventionell, rebellisch und kontrovers beschrieben - und als der talentierteste Schauspieler seiner Generation. Während seiner außergewöhnlichen Karriere als Schauspieler und Regisseur wie auch seines gelegentlich exzessiven Privatlebens zeigte Penn immer wieder, dass er sich nicht an Regeln hält. Seine jungen Jahre waren neben überwältigenden schauspielerischen Leistungen auch geprägt durch die stürmische Ehe mit Madonna und kurze Gefängnisaufenthalte. Später entwickelte er sich zu einem brillanten Regisseur, liebevollen Vater und engagierten politischen und sozialen Aktivisten. Illustriert mit ca. 45 Schwarz-Weiß-Bildern zeichnet Richard T. Kelly in dieser Biografie, die auf exklusiven Interviews mit Sean Penn, seiner Familie, seinen Freunden und Kollegen basiert (Jack Nicholson, Dennis Hopper, Woody Allen, Susan Sarandon, Bono, Christopher Walken, Anjelica Huston und viele andere), - ein spannendes, detail- und facettenreiches Bild des kompromisslosen Schauspielers und seines bewegten Lebens.
