‘Moon’ men shine

'In the Shadow of the Moon' bows in BevHills

HOLLYWOOD — Normally jaded bizzers were left slack-jawed Wednesday night in BevHills as ThinkFilm screened docu “In the Shadow of the Moon,” the story of the Apollo astronauts in their own words, with moonwalker Buzz Aldrin in attendance.

Ron Howard, who got to know several Apollo astronauts while making “Apollo 13,” was on hand to introduce the pic.

Also in attendance was “Apollo” thesp Bill Paxton who said he appreciated seeing the astronauts presented as he’d known them. “You see they’re like all of us. They have the same hopes and dreams and disappointments.”

Aldrin, now 77, mused that while nearly 450 people have gone into Earth’s orbit, only 24 went to the moon.

“It’s fading into history,” he said, “and it would be nice if the government, on the 40th anniversary of landing on the moon, recognized the contributions of these people.”
