Capra, in the previous decade, had done a really nice number of fun and top quality documentaries. So I had high expectations for this one.This review is to hold you from having that same experience. This short has its ups and downs, but I'm hoping you can avoid the disappointments and confusions it might otherwise bring you.There is some nice items here, so you will be rewarded for watching, but I think the opening mins are a puzzle. The first mins are the views of one rocket open after another, after another, after ... yes, really, they go on for a loooong time. It is not a spoiler to tell that one blows up ... but the next shot is of a scientist/engineer who thoughtfully writes something in his notebook, and there are more rocket launches ... so we don't understand what the mission is of all the rocket launches. No one explains what we are seeing or why.Finally we receive a fast audio and shot of an astronaut reporting from the early 1960s, one-person Mercury ship, and then other long long time of watching the World from 100 miles up over the Atlantic, and more Atlantic, and then we're said to watch for Africa, and a long time soon we want Australia a "good night", as we look at footage of World from 100 miles up.And THEN it gets to be like Frank Capra for a tiny while. We see a cartoon moon (voiced by Jim Backus) getting worried by all the rocket launches and complaining to Mr. Zone (voiced by Paul Frees), who tells mankind has no reason to go to Mr. Moon. Next is a series of man-in-the-street interviews done by Danny Thomas, who is the narrator for the rest of the movie ...... which turns into a depiction of a type of mini-shuttle taking astronauts and supplies to an orbiting, nuclear powered, zone station. There is a fast "Rendezvous in Space" fulfilling the title.For almost half of the short, it is just the shorts of rockets and the Earth. The very short cartoon and interview clips are played for laughs. The trip to the zone station and back is cute static animation.If you are into old zone documentary for historic reasons, it's not a terrible look at one 1964 point idea that didn't create it. (The mini-shuttle is not the "Dyna-Soar" plane, more like the "lifting body" car (with aft-section cargo and equipment modules) that was shown in the "Marooned" movie. The zone lab is neither Skylab nor the old MOL orbiting lab.) The need for isometric exercises is shown correctly, inside the zone lab. There is an amusing sequence in which some experimental flowers there complain about continually trying to face the sun during the 45 minute days.If you like seeing the old faces and hearing the old voices again, you can pick out the folks who voiced Fred Flintstone and Rocky the Flying Squirrel. Danny Thomas was incredibly famous at the time.But if you were interested in Frank Capra's last documentary, it's a disappointing comparison to his others.(I will UPDATE this just a bit with private items ... I was one of the smart-aleck space-nut children that loved the Zone Program. I saw this a tiny after the Fresh York World's Fair, but I don't think my family saw it there; it was a tiny after, at some museum or something out in the country. We were in something like a planetarium and it was projected up on the curved ceiling. (The concept that we had pictures of rocket launches, and color movie of the World from 100 miles up, that was a fresh thing and folks were fired up about it. So it's fair to tell that not many objected to the long "looking down on the world" sequence, or to all the rocket launches. I remember liking them myself, but getting tired after a while. (It is worth remembering that this movie is probably intended to be a part of a bigger exhibit.)
