Favorite Classic Movies?

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…

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.

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.

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.
