In a heart-warming tale of friendship and perseverence, Alan Shepard rescues fellow astronaut Gus Grissom from the throes of heroin addiction just in time for his first trip in the Mercury rocket.  Alan bursts through the door of that cheap, Cape Canaveral apartment to find an ashen-skinned Grissom sprawled out in a ratty, overturned chair.  Nursing him back to health over a week, he manages to get him healthy-looking again and loaded into the rocket without NASA taking the slightest notice.
