DVD_TV: Apollo 13

The August 3, 2008 presentation of DVD_TV: Enhanced Version, AMC's original movie trivia show, was Apollo 13. The show was festooned with behind-the-scenes stories and space-race facts. If you were watching, you found out why America forgot about the Apollo 13 mission until Ron Howard made a movie about it, how Kevin Costner lost out on his big chance to play a heroic astronaut, who tossed their cookies during zero-gravity filming, and much, much more!
