Did Astronaut Buzz Aldrin See The Film Destination Moon?

Yesterday Buzz Aldrin honored his mother on Facebook.(Ironically her name was Marion Moon!) He published a picture of her with him at West Point in the late 1940’s. He was in cadet uniform, by the way.
    I’m sure that all of you are familiar with the 1947 George Pal film Destination Moon. I wonder if Buzz saw it while he was a cadet at West Point. If he did watch, did he imagine all of those decades ago that one day he would walk on the moon?

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
