COVER: "THE RIGHT STUFF" Can a movie make a President? ED HARRIS as Astronaut JOHN GLENN. Inset: JAMES WATT: The Last Straw? Cover: Photo by John Bryson-Sigma.
TOP OF THE WEEK:
'THE RIGHT STUFF' IN 1984: With nearly six months to go until the Iowa caucuses, the Democratic presidential race is already under way-and the contrast of styles between the leaders, Walter Mondale and John Glenn, is striking. This week Mondale expects to win two crucial endorsements that symbolize his traditional strength. Glenn is banking heavily on image-and with the release of "The Right Stuff," a dazzling new movie about America's race to space (left, the celluloid astronauts), that image will be redhot. NEWSWEEK previews the politics, the movie and the politics of the movie.
THE INTERIOR SECRETARY'S LAST GAFFE?: He had slighted liberals, environmentalists, Indians and Beach Boys fans, but when Interior Secretary James Watt last week described his new coal-leasing commission as "a black a woman, two Jews and a cripple," he may have injured himself as well. This time, Republican senators led the chorus of calls for his resignation-and there was widespread speculation that he may have made his last mistake.
SHOWDOWN FOR AMERICA'S CUP: As the week closed, the battle for America's Cup-and for America's honor-drew to a dramatic close in Rhode Island Sound. While Liberty (right) strove to maintain the United States' 132-year winning streak, the upstart Aussies fought back boldly to even the best-of-seven series-threatening to take the cup Down Under for the next meet.
TAKING SIDES IN LEBANON: Lebanese government soldiers fought a furious battle last week in defense of a mountaintop town called Suk al Gharb (right). When they ran low on ammunition, two U.S. warships opened fire on insurgent militiamen besieging the town -the first time that Americans had taken sides by fighting in direct support of Lebanon's hard-pressed Army.
