Tubi - Supercar - Old Sci Fi - Old War Movies

Title says it all.

Been watching Tubi - no out of pocket cost and minimally invasive commercials - and have been enjoying old movies that I never or not seen in 50 or 60 years.

'Supercar' - I loved the song and it always pissed me off they called it a car but it had no wheels.

'The Train' - John Frankenheimer at his peak. Gritty B&W movie of French resistance in WWII. Plenty of train action including practical scenes of steam engine destruction.

'Battle Beyond the Sun' - 1958, Francis Ford Coppola directs and stars in it - an awful movie but the same sound effects used on the bridge of the original Star Trek series - go figure.

'Killers from Space' - This is where those aliens with the giant plastic eyeballs came from. Peter Graves stars - he must have been just a kid (1954).

The Train is a great flick. I have the DVD and the special features are just as good as the movie.

He was 28. Not exactly a kid.

The wife and I have watched some of the old John Wayne movies and most were filmed over 50 years ago.

That’s not really surprising since he hasn’t made a movie in over forty years.

Recently watched 'McClintock'. He threw in some gratuitous cowboy shit (twirling his six-gun), which was cool. But he for sure was nearing the end of his runway (1970s, I think(). Some of his movies were made in the '30s.

You are thinking of the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

IMO his best acting by far was in his last movie, The Shootist.

I concur. I think overall he was a terrible actor, in The Shootist he was good. Maybe it was because he knew he was dying of cancer as well

That is one of the movies I watched in the theaters and still have because it holds up.

Quiet Man > The Shootist

Also, I vastly prefer The Cowboys, The Searchers, Haratri and Donovans Reef to The Shootist.


YMMV.

That's because actors lie for a living. He was just himself in every movie pretending to be in different situations.

Old movie buff here....

For starters westerns which iffen you hadn't seen them, all classics;

Stagecoach w/Wayne and Bing Crosby. The original
The man who shot Liberty Valance with Jimmy Steward AND Wayne
High Noon with Gary Cooper
The Ox bow incident with Henry Fonda
Shane with Allan Ladd

Now as to Sci-fi etc.
Frankenstein with Lon Chaney
Dracula with Bella Lugosi
Wolfman with Lon Chaney
Hunchback of Notre Dame with Lon Chaney. This one crippled Chaney due to the makeup/harness required to create the hump.

For B flicks vintage 50s
The Brain that wouldnt die
Attack of the Giant Leeches
Attack of the Killer Shrews
I was a teenage werewolf with Michael Landon (1st flick IIRC)
Vincent Price in pretty much any of E.A. Poe's writings.

He started out working as a grip on movie sets. Wyatt Earp was often a consultant on westerns, and Morrison(John Wayne) was fascinated by him. He would spend his spare time listening to Earp's stories. John Wayne's acting was mostly trying to be Earp.

I found another oldie I had forgotten about.

Stingray. 1964.

It's another Supercar-type marionette show, but with a 600 knot submarine.

The 'star' is a dead ringer for Archer.

Jason and the Argonauts. The stop-motion scene's created by special effects pioneer Ray Harryhausen are legendary.
