Storyline

For over 35 years, Woody and the Cliffhangers meet to watch a double-feature (with a break between the features to watch a cliffhanger serial) and also to have lunch. They talk about everything under the sun: movies, family, wives, stars, surgeries, their health, their diet, their entertainment, their retirements, their kids, their pets, their lives, their loves (and although the rules state that one cannot talk about religion or politics) they end up talking about that, too. Their unique personalities, and individual life stories are just as interesting as the movies they watch . . . We hope you will join us in the support of this special film that celebrates tradition, friendship, nostalgia and films ~ The good ol' fashion way, with some good ole' fashioned gentlemen. They definitely don't make 'em like they used to! Written by Inda Reid

Trivia

Peter O'Toole makes an appearance in the documentary, and explains the horrifying effect that Hitler had on him as a young boy. Cliffhanger President 'Woody Wise (I)' reads a moving six page letter that Mr. O'Toole sends to him, from the island of Madeira. In the letter, Peter O'Toole explains his interest and significance of the role he played in the film Rogue Male (1976). In the documentary, Woody is consequently invited to share in Peter's crowning moment at the historic Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, where his foot- and handprints are immortalized in concrete sparkled with gold dust, custom made to emulate the desert sands of Arabia.

A wonderful documentary dealing with classic films and camaraderie
3 June 2015 | by ScarletPimpernel64See all my reviews

The group of men detailed in this splendid documentary have gotten together for a good, long time to watch movies, but this really isn't about movies. It's about a LOVE of movies, and the camaraderie that comes from it. These gentlemen love to give one another a good natured hard time while discussing the films they love, the stars they enjoy watching and the memorabilia they collect. And while each man knows each other's likes and dislikes inside and out after all these years, each week they start all over again--and it's fun for them. And for the viewer to be allowed in is a privilege. We should appreciate it, and thank them for letting us in. This is a treat, and one to be cherished.
