Capricorn One Movie Review

Hal Holbrook steals the show as a semi-deranged NASA exec who fakes a Mars landing in order to save the space program and his job... even if that means offing O.J. Simpson! Cute for a while, Capricorn One wears thin in its second hour, degenerating into a by-the-books chase movie with the feds after the rogue astronauts and Elliot Gould's reporter after the feds. Telly Savalas's cameo is a scream.
