Jake Gyllenhaal as Homer Hickam in "October Sky" (1999) directed by Joe Johnston
"The silvery cylinder burst forth in a fiery column of smoke and flame... racing the very wind as it soared into the sky... a messenger of these Rocket Boys of Big Creek. These boys who use their brains, not brawn... who play not football, but with Apollo's fire."

Poem (Lana Turner has collapsed!)
Lana Turner has collapsed!
I was trotting along and suddenly
it started raining and snowing
and you said it was hailing
but hailing hits you on the head
hard so it was really snowing and
raining and I was in such a hurry
to meet you but the traffic
was acting exactly like the sky
and suddenly I see a headline
LANA TURNER HAS COLLAPSED!
there is no snow in Hollywood
there is no rain in California
I have been to lots of parties
and acted perfectly disgraceful
but I never actually collapsed
oh Lana Turner we love you get up
