Moonwalk One. United States Information Service, 1970.

NASA approached documentary filmmakers Francis Thompson and Alexander Hammid with the idea of producing a film about the Apollo program, culminating with the first Moon landing. They obtained funding from MGM, but the studio later pulled their support. As the Apollo 11 launch approached, NASA contacted Thompson again with a less ambitious budget proposal, and he in turn brought on editor Theo Kamecke, who assembled footage in various formats from multiple sources to put the film together. Moonwalk One was critically acclaimed, winning a special award at the Cannes Film Festival, but was not a commercial success. It was re-released in a "director's cut" on DVD in 2009.
