Made On the Moon
Made On the Moon
a battery of research scientists interview volunteers for a medical experiment. their least likely subject is the most difficult. Like something from "the Rhyme of the ancient Mariner," Stanley Lewis, a middle-class nebbish from Southern California, unreels a story of absurd and mythic proportions. From the cradle, Stanley has been obsessed with the moon. He yearns to be with it. His fantasies of getting there leap forward in the late 1950s with the exploration of space. the cultural vacuum of suburbia, however, proves to be a greater barrier than the void of space, itself. Being entirely the Wrong Stuff, Stanley Lewis is marooned on planet earth. But obsession does not die. as the inspirational promise of the New Frontier succumbs to commercialism and cheap trinkets are eventually "Made on the Moon" - Stanley implodes. He does everything he can to get there. the consequences prove that the little guy triumph can be as deeply moving as a great man's fall.
