Not sure if this movie has been posted before but I think that it has some very good info on this subject.
I think that we may have gone to the Moon but, I don't think we have ever seen real footage of it.
A funny thing happen on the way to the Moon!

USA tried to block Soviets to make the observations and 320 million dollars was used against the spy fleet (Operation Crossroads b) - but Soviets made their measurements.
Of course this material was top secret data and never published. Only recently many Russian scientists have published the figures (Popov, Pokrovsky, etc) but making no reference to the original spy data, of course. English translation can be found from some hoax pages linked below.
There are number of lies related to Saturn V. One example is the weight of Skylab said to be 77 tons - calculated from the individual parts and by comparing the weight with other similar space stations, the real weight was less than 30 tons.
Now US top rocket industries have dreams to break in the future the mysterious 50 ton limit...
LM was not manageable...
...and it was never tested in reality.
LM was extremely unstable - one fixed engine and small manually driven "docking boosters" which did not allow the control of the powerful main engine.
In NASA videos the LM approached vertically directly from the Moon surface to meet the CM just within few tens of minutes. This is only possible in Disney's fairytale stories.
I hope I'm not retreading an already answered point, but I didn't see anyone yet point out that this is totally normal for any picture pointed away from the sun.

Whatever the actual construction of the Apollo super light rig, it appears not to have been perfect as an artificial sun. There are noticeable hot-spots (or brighter areas) around shadows where the photographer has the 'sun' immediately behind him. An effect that can be seen in the centre of many Apollo photographs – here is an example:
