WAS THE MOON LANDING FAKED? OR WAS THE DOCUMENTARY?

OPERATION LUNE – DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
This award-winning film exposes how Stanley Kubrick faked the 1969 moon landing, featuring interviews from many key players in NASA, “Operation Lune” navigates the viewer through lies and truths; fact and fiction. This is no ordinary documentary. Its intent is to inform and entertain the viewer, but also to shake them-up – make them aware that one should always view television with a critical eye.
Amazon Prime’s Blurb.

Odd that when you read the last sentence in the above blurb that you get such good advice considering the source it’s coming from.

The plain truth about this video is, that it’s a total fraud.  Well, maybe that’s too strong a phrase to use. How about an “Homage to conspiracy theories?” But I’ll settle for “Mockumentary.”

Usually after I view a video, I do some in-depth research Google diving to see what other background information I can find about the film. After about all of 10 minutes, here’s what turned up:

RATING: PULLING YOUR LEG CHARLEY

Dark Side of the Moon is a French mockumentary by director William Karel which originally aired on Arte in 2002 with the title Opération Lune. The basic premise for the film is the theory that the television footage from the Apollo 11 Moon landing was faked and recorded in a studio by the CIA with help from director Stanley Kubrick.

From Wikipedia:

“It is finally revealed that this is a mockumentary as the end credits roll over a montage of blooper reels, with the main participants laughing over their lines or over their inability to remember them.”

Actually if you compare them, the positive reviews are not that much better than the critical ones.

WAS THE APOLLO 11 MOON LANDING FAKED?
Let’s take a step back here and give a very broad tip of the hat to the conspiracy theorists. Anything is possible, right? The internet, and particularly YouTube, offers up plenty of food for thought on the Apollo 11 cover-up claim. But remember, “One should always view television with a critical eye.” Now where did we read that advice?

Take a guess which “Mockumentary” they refer to in the article?

ONE MOON LANDING I KNOW WASN’T FAKED.
Bernie O’ConnorEditor, Videos Of The Damned.
Over 12 years ago, I had the honor of interviewing the late Edgar Mitchell, the Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 14. He graciously consented to appear, via phone, on a paranormal themed radio show I was producing and hosting  for our local public radio station.

On February 5, 1971, Astronaut Edgar Mitchell and Commander Alan Shepard, spent nine hours working on the lunar surface. During the hour or so we chatted, I posed the question, “Edgar, a lot of people claim the whole space program is a big fake, especially Apollo 11. What would you say to them?”

He laughed and answered, “I know the space program is real. I was there, standing on the Moon looking down on you folks. In fact, I took your picture.”
(Unfortunately I do not have a copy of this show.)
