Trying to find a good movie nowadays is like trying to find hen’s teeth. I started Hondo today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Like the 1911 they just don’t make 'em like they used to. What is your favorite classic movie? Looking for suggestions…
Highly dependent on viewer. I think there’s already a thread for this. Dawn?
My wife and I do a favorite bad b movie night. That’s alot of fun too.
Sky High ( for the kids)
Just so you know the Magnificent Seven these were some real Warrior Poets and big 2A supporters.
A real Classic my man Humphrey Bogart. What Kind of gun is in his hand? hhhuuummm
Have to put it on my list. Thank you, brother…
Had to look that one up! The poster has him holding a Colt 1911. It never appeared in the movie. Humphrey Bogart was a compact guy. He used a Colt 1903/.32 throughout the movie because it fit his stature.
I wonder what classic revolvers the Magnificent Seven used? I bet they would have been good USCCA members.
They actually have a Website devoted to firearms used in movies:
High Plains Drifter… classic Eastwood. I have not watched in quite a while though.
Body Snatchers… still gives me the creepies…
For Grade B laughs… Starship Troopers. ooohh or Tremors!
They never did Heinlein right on Starship Troopers.
A scene came up in Hondo where Geraldine Page (Angie Lowe) pulled a wheel-gun on John Wayne (Hondo). She forgot she had an empty chamber when she tried shooting him. Good for Hondo but a reminder about empty chambers.
Red River,Jeramia Johnson,
the Great Escape
That is one of my favorite books by Robert Heinlein “Starship Troopers” was my gateway book into military Sci Fi and led to me meeting and becoming friends with some great authors.
I hate they can never get it right.
