Whet your appetite for The Rocketeer by watching some of these related videos...

Radar Men From The Moon: Trailer

Dave Stevens took inspiration for The Rocketeer from the old Republic serial starring Commando Cody, Sky Marshal of the Universe! Can you see the resemblance?

The Notorious Bettie Page: Trailer

It's no secret that Stevens modelled Cliff's girlfriend Betty (Jenny in the film) on pin-up queen Bettie Page. Check out the trailer for the 2005 Page biopic, directed by Mary Harron.

The Rocketeer: Excitement in the Air

In preparation for the release of The Rocketeer, Disney aired this television special about the making of the film. Check out the entire program on YouTube!

NES Commercial

I gotta tell you, I downloaded a ROM of this game a while ago and could not get past the first level, so none of this gameplay looked familiar to me.


This beautiful Pixar-style animated short was directed by John Banana as a tribute to Dave Stevens' most famous and enduring creation.

The Rocketeer: Trailer

And of course, check out the original trailer for the film itself. Our discussion of The Rocketeer should be up on iTunes by Wednesday morning!
