Transcript Apollo 13

TOM HANKS: Thank you, we are delighted. Our ensemble effort on camera was rooted in the research that we did and the reality of the ensemble efforts of thousands of Americans. Men, Women, and children who in the decade of the 1960’s figured out a way to send a man to the moon and return him safely to Earth.

Thank you for recognizing our efforts and also their efforts by way of dedication I think.

On behalf of all the cast, let me say that a man by the name of Chris Craft was to America’s Van Lunar Project what a certain man by the name of Ron Howard was to the filming of Apollo 13. We salute you and we salute our fellow actors.

Thank you very much. [Applause]
