    Nice...
    Easily the best of the three. Great cast!!

    95% filmed in FP - in the early sixties, there was not an international airport [even in Papeete] There was a small make-shift strip on Bora-Bora where the whole production was centred around, as shipping was too slow.

    Mr. Brando, being enamored with the atmosphere - purchased a couple of islands off Tahiti and sired a couple of half-Tahitian children.

    2001 A Space Odyssey

    Smoked a little smoke before going in the theater which made the movie even better!

    ^ Yes, it was a great theatre. On Manchester Blvd. and Crenshaw, just above Hollywood Park race track. I lived within walking distance.

    I once got snowed in at a hotel in northern Norway. Stuck there for 5 days with a Norge TV and VHS player and only one VHS tape.

    It was The Green Berets - It was that or watch Norge TV. In those days they played on a permanent loop of Norge Orchestra, followed by Ski Jumping, followed by Langlauf racing, followed by Orchestra ........
    Then John Wayne every night for 5 nights.

    The Living Desert, Disney's first non-cartoon movie. Wonderful time lapse photography of the Mojave springing to life afer a rainfall. Been meaning to pick up a DVD to see if it is still magical.

    My memory of the time is dim. After all more than half a century passed since then. But I believe it was Disney's Bambi.

    It was definitely a Disney movie but not sure which one.

    The first visit to the cinema I can remember was a Disney double bill of Pinocchio and The Cat From Outer Space.

    Saturday morning pictures was my first cinematic experience. I remember watching Pathe newsreels Newsreels, video, archive, film, footage, stills - British Pathé

    First real movie was Zulu. Dad picked me up from school and took me as a treat for him failing his driving test. Mum had made us some sarnies to eat.
    Do not walk beside me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me for I may not follow. Just pretty much leave me the fuck alone!

    My mother took us all to see The Sound of Music.

    I was watching the Oscars the other night, and still ask myself "why"?
