October Sky Anagram

Recent discovery: the movie title October Sky is an anagram for the book title Rocket Boys! Both are the autobiography of Homer Hickam, who grew up in a poor West Virginia coal mining community but became excited about science, built model rockets in high school, made it into college, and eventually became a NASA engineer. The film is quite inspirational; the book is on my read-someday list; the anagram connection is a pleasant surprise.

(Apparently the title Rocket Boys was thought to be less marketable to women by the moviemakers. According to the Internet Anagram Server "Homer Hickam" can be rearranged into "Hammock Heir" or "'Hi Mom!' Hacker"; cf.ArsMagna (2002-09-27), HarmonicMotel (2003-10-23), ...) - ^z - 2011-03-07
