Neil Armstrong was born on August 5th 1930, in the front room of his grandparent’s farmhouse in Wapakoneta, Ohio. As he grew up, he became fascinated by flight, and fashioned flying models from balsa wood and tissue paper, which he flew with his siblings from bedroom windows. His legacy is of a quiet, determined and talented man who was true to himself. He was very much of the place he was from, inspired the best in other people and stepped up to the highest pinnacle when it was asked of him.
Critic reviews for Armstrong
“Armstrong is a worthy biography and a solid way to mark the anniversary [of the Moon walk].”
- Third Coast Review
“With the 50th anniversary of man's first steps on the moon just days away, movies dealing with the event have been thick on the land for awhile. But even if you think you've seen enough, "Armstrong” is worth your time."
- Los Angeles Times
“Combining contemporary interviews with family members, friends and colleagues with archive footage and… Armstrong home movies… David Fairhead presents a fascinating, moving portrait of the unassuming man who changed the way we look at the stars.”
