This is a fun, fast-paced biopic about Colonel Norman Phillips. No one has squeezed more out of 98 years than Phillips, and he tells his own story with clarity, candor, and charisma. Raised by illiterate, immigrant grandparents, Phillips grew up to become a decorated World War II fighter pilot, mentor to future astronauts, and a Vietnam vet as well as an artist, teacher, and novelist.

The film is a Star Island Film production and directed by Jay MacNamee and Bob Bear. Jay is an ward-winning playwright who holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Dartmouth College. Bob is an orthopedic surgeon with a life­long interest in music, film, and the arts.
