I'm sure everybody knows about the gag film Wally Schirra put together for an Al Shepard tribute dinner, but I've never seen it. There's supposed to be a version with a sequence that has Shepard turning the tables on the gotcha.

Are these anywhere to be seen? I'd love to take a look.

"Alan Shepard Gotcha film" can be found on the DVD included with the Apogee Books title "The Real Space Cowboys" by Wally Schirra and Ed Buckbee, but I do not know whether it´s the version you are looking for.

I've got the book but not the DVD, it got "nephewized". (That's what happens to everything my nephew gets his 10-year-old-going-on-40 hands on)

Is it online anywhere?
