This week's Retro Saturday film is The Age of Space Transportation, an undated mid-1970s film that promotes the upcoming Space Shuttle as an affordable, reliable and safe means of reaching low Earth orbit. According to this documentary, an orbiter would fly every two weeks.

The film was produced by Image Associates for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

The film was narrated by Jason Robards, a hot commodity at the time, because he'd won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1977 for his portrayal of Washington Post executive editor Ben Bradlee in All the President's Men.
