This week's Retro Saturday film is a 15-minute NASA documentary on the launch of Apollo 4. It was the first uncrewed test flight of the Saturn V rocket.

Apollo 4 launched at 7:00 AM Eastern time on November 9, 1967 from Kennedy Space Center's Pad 39A. It was the first NASA launch after the tragic Apollo 1 fire on the pad at the Cape's Pad 34. While the Apollo capsule was redesigned, development of the Saturn V rocket continued.
