Peter Hyams‘ Capricorn One hit theaters in the early summer of 1978. The action-conspiracy flick revolves around a hoax Mars landing and stars James Brolin, Sam Waterston and O.J. Simpson as a trio of threatened astronauts and Elliot Gould as an investigative reporter who smells something fishy.
I caught Capricorn One in the theater when it first ran and I remember greatly enjoying it. I wanted to sit there and watch the thrilling spectacle a second time. However, I was 11-years-old at the time. I haven’t seen the film since and I have the feeling it may not hold up to my lofty memories. Time, once again, to find out.
