SHEPARD AND MITCHELL PLANT THE US FLAG AND BEGIN LUNAR EXPLORATION.
DIFFICULTIES DURING THE INITIAL DOCKING COULD HAVE SCRUBBED THE LUNAR LANDING. An internal NASA/Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC) duplicate film roll of scenes taken during the Apollo 14 flight by the 16mm Maurer Data Acquisition Cameras (DAC). Spooled on a metal reel housed in a period canister, 12 ½ inches in diameter. The MSC Film Form 2138 Film Can Label (May 66) on the canister reads in part: "FILM LENGTH: 980 feet, TYPE FILM: COLOR PRINT (via stamp), Subject: Apollo XIV Mags G, H, AA, CC, BB, D, A, C."
Brief scene descriptions from each magazine are as follows:
Magazine G Heat flow experiments performed by Stuart Roosa inside Command Module Kitty Hawk.

Magazine AA Lunar Module Antares descent and landing on the lunar surface.
Magazine CC EVA I (Moonwalk) lunar surface activities, Shepard films Mitchell as he descends the LM ladder and sets foot on the Moon. Shepard and Mitchell plant the United States Flag. Start of Apollo Lunar Surface Experiment Package (ALSEP) deployment.
Magazine BB - Lunar Module Antares lift-off from the lunar surface, U.S. flag visible, lunar surface scenes during climb to lunar orbit.
Magazine D - CSM Kitty Hawk views of LM (ascent stage) Antares after lunar liftoff and docking with CSM.
Magazine A - CSM Kitty Hawk views of the docking attempts with LM Antares just after TransLunar Injection to the Moon (CSM transposition and docking). The first several tries were unsuccessful. If this docking failed, the lunar landing would have been scrubbed.
