In honor of the 20th anniversary of "The Rocketeer," Disney has released the beloved film on Blu-ray.
Hollywood in the 1930s serves as the backdrop for this slice of nostalgia in which test pilot Cliff Secord (Billy Campbell) discovers a top-secret jet pack. With the help of his mechanic mentor, Peevy (Alan Arkin), Cliff is propelled from ordinary guy to a superhero, aptly named The Rocketeer.
Cliff finds himself on a dangerous mission replete with ruthless villains, Hollywood starlets, gangsters and Nazi spies. With the help of his girlfriend, Jenny (Jennifer Connelly), Cliff foils an evil plot to take over the world.
CNN spoke to Billy Campbell, who played the title role in what was the actor's first feature film.
