Wanda Nevada (1979)
View in context
OK,I'm prejudiced.I watched this movie in Livingston,Montana when it came out in the local theatre.There were a few rather rowdy folks behind me in an otherwise pretty empty house and they were being a bit noisier than I liked.After a few pointed stares and shushes as the movie started I got PO'D and turned around and flat told them to "shut the Hell up!".It was with some chagrin that about two minutes later I recognized Peter Fonda on screen as the guy sitting behind me.........
Now,context.The movie is set in the early 50's(Studebaker Hawks etc) and the relationship between the Fonda character and the Shields character reflects/mirrors that between jerry lee Lewis and his child bride and Elvis Presley and Priscilla! Either it is totally coincidental or Old Petey was at least trying to be prescient.
Yes it is a kinda dopey movie but I did enjoy it,not just because Peter was sitting behind me (He is a darn nice guy,not at like his nasty sister) but it was just a rather harmless bit of fun movie.Nuff said. John
Into the Blue (2005)
It's a rehash!
Am I the only one old enuff to see that this is a thinly disguised,not overly well done rehash of "The Deep"?
Let's see......Carribbean locale,lost drugs,good looking Treasure Hunters,evil drug Lords,lots of splish-splash bikini action. Get a life and write some new scripts for Gosh sakes!Or at least be honest enuff to acknowledge the kinship between this groaner and the original!
Not that "The Deep" was all that great a flick but Nick Nolte had as much character in his little finger as pretty boy Walker in his whole six-pack!Yes,Jessica is a dish but she still needs to develop some prescence to go with the athletic good looks.
Mackenzie's Raiders (1958)
Have searched for info on this show for ages!
Finally!I have been trying to find info on this show for some time. I recalled it from the late 50s and reruns in the 60s probably because my father was in the 4th Cavalry,in the 1930's tho not in Texas,by then they were at Ft.Meade,S.D. but still mounted. Glad to see the info and that Richard Carlson was the Colonel,always did like him. I do recall a rather odd bit of uniform/costuming info unless I am confusing with another show.I remember the hats worn by the Raiders as having "plumes" or rather ostentatious feathers.Not a bit of US Cav kit I ever recall as proper but more reminiscent of Confederate Cavalry.The show ran late nights for quite some time in our broadcast area in syndication.
