This is from The Right Stuff’s movie premiere in Chicago in October 1983. I’m not sure which I like more, the photo or the caption:
“An autograph seeker gets a ‘Righteous’ autograph from Donald ‘Deke’ Slayton, while fellow Mercury astronauts party in the background. Left to right is Gene Cernan and Jim McDivitt.”
You probably spotted the error in that caption. Slayton never gave “righteous” autographs that night; he saved those for the Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure premiere.

Love this!

Woah. Cernan and McDivitt became buddies? 

Isn’t it also an error if they said that Mercury astronauts are partying in the background?I mean, unless John Glenn and Alan Shepard wore some pretty relastic Cernan/MCDivitt masks. Maybe it was a masquerade party? Totally believable. ; )

Yup, Cernan and McDivitt aren’t Mercury astronauts. That’s the “real” error that I was referring to. :D
I wonder what the astronauts at the premiere thought of the movie. A lot of the Mercury astronauts, including Slayton, are on record for hating it. Mostly because of the way it treated one of the men who gave Slayton the pin he’s wearing at the premiere…
This picture doesn’t have the highest photo quality, so when I first glanced at it I thought, “Hey, I like that Gemini model that Deke is holding!” Then I looked closer and saw that it was a beer. :D

Haha it does look like that, Deke never leaves home without his Gemini model!
And I love in Deke’s book when he talks about how The Right Stuff made everyone think of the 7 of them as a group again. Because I will always think of them as a group. THE COOLEST GROUP

legit though I feel like every book I read written by an astronaut has parts where they specifically correct a bunch of shit people have misconceptions of based on the book and film of The Right Stuff.
idk I still like it. :3
