I watched this yesterday and two things fascinated me:


1. von Braun's exceptional command of English even though he had a noticeable accent which was to be expected.

2. Some of the special effects used looked very advanced for the time.

I just watched this recently funnily enough. There is some great stuff on YT with Braun and a couple of really good German rocketry docos as well.
