And then there was "REMO WILLIAMS: The Adventure Begins"...but underwhelming resultant box office, I gather, dictated that said adventure never continued, much less concluded.

But ya gotta admit, the late Ward sure looked a lot more like Gus Grissom than Dennis Quaid did like Gordon Cooper or Ed Harris like John Glenn...but SCOTT Glenn looked more like Alan Shepard than ANY of those fellow "The Right Stuff" Mercury 7 portrayers. (Meanwhile, nobody much CARED if whoever played Deke Slayton resembled him, inasmuch as he never flew until Apollo/Soyuz, as things turned out.)
