He flew three space missions: first as pilot of Gemini 8 in 1966, then as command module pilot on Apollo 9 in 1969, and finally as commander of Apollo 15 in 1971. He was subsequently assigned to the joint USA/USSR Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, and from 1973 to 1977 worked as deputy director and director of the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center.

All Aboard! Mar 23, 2007
There is nothing better than Tom Hanks in an animated movie. Children are facinated when it comes to trains, Christmas and Santa Claus. This inspirational movie will leave you believing, and fill your heart with the spirit of Christmas.

All Aboard! Mar 19, 2007
My Grandkids, ages 8 and 4, really liked this movie. The animation is fantastic. The four year old loves anything to do with trains. Some things seemed a little scary but they both handled it well. Overall, it is a very good Christmas movie.
To The Top Of The World!!! Mar 15, 2007
Great movie, loads of fun. A must have for anyone collecting movies. Enjoy a cup of JO while you take a train trip to the top of the world.
Great movie for everyone. Mar 10, 2007
I purchased this move because I heard how great it was from many people, and they were right! I am a little disappointed in the DVD physically. The side of the DVD that is recorded on is discolored almost like a water stain. It plays fine though. I just hope in a couple of years this does not become a problem with its ability to be played. Great movie to have for when the holiday's are come around.
BEST CHILD'S CHRISTMAS MOVIE EVER Feb 23, 2007
I came across this movie on television right before Christmas and started watching it with my 2 1/2 year old grandson thinking it would keep him interested for a short time. WOW, he would not stop watching and neither could I. He almost couldn't make it thru each commercial. I ordered the movie from this site and it is probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. My grandson is still watching it at the end of February. I highly recommend this movie to anyone any age. Bless you Tom Hanks! You did a wonderful job. We Love it!!
