Icarus Montgolfier Wright – Ray Bradbury

On the eve of the first flight to the moon, an astronaut ponders his ordinary-sounding name.

Released in 1962, it was set in the near future – August 22nd, 1970 – which ended up being about a year from when man actually landed on the moon.

From Format Films, 1962. Illustrations by Joe Mugnaini, voices by James Whitmore and Ross Martin.
