End of the Spear (2005)
good movie that is very strong, too strong for kids
Well this movie does a good job of showing the mindset of foreign missionaries and also the mindset of a stone age tribe that has no way of imagining our modern culture.
The murder scene is pretty awful, I'm still flash backing the scene. It's certainly "real".
I think the tearjerker at the end tries too hard. It goes a bit off in the realism department in order to get the emotional affect desired. I would have liked to have seen something more realistic.
The interview with the real characters dramatized in the movie that is part of the end scroll is not to be missed. Don't leave early.
77 Sunset Strip (1958)
Great Detective Show didn't take itself too seriously
This was a wonderful show. Kookie and Roscoe gave it an added comic element. It also allowed for human effort. As I recall, even the secretary often gave ideas for solving cases.
I recall the caper where Roscoe, the horse player who always played hunches (and always lost) had to come up with all the winners for the day's races. After much effort he did so, but of course he did not bet on a single one.
I watch little TV any more but I tried out Remington Steele, because the daughter of Efriam Zimbalist, Jr.: Stephanie Zimbalist was cast as one of the leads. The two shows shared much similarity. They were both detective shows which really was only peripherally about solving cases. Mostly they were about relationships.
I'm guessing that all the film of these shows is not around any more or I think they would be shown as reruns. I would sure love to see some of these shows either on TV or bought on VHS tapes.
