A good night for scanning around. Back when they used to make movies.

I’d forgotten the guys sitting on the apartment building stairways with AR-15s in Soylent Green...

I do not remember that but I was impressed by the AUGs in Sledge Hammer, and the SKS in Monty Python.

Spoiler Warning for those who haven't seen the movie.


Both very good movies. The scene of Edward G. Robinson going "Home" was....I really don't know how to describe it but it hit me hard.

This was the 101st and last movie in which Edward G. Robinson appeared; he died of bladder cancer twelve days after the completion of filming, on January 26, 1973. Robinson had previously worked with Heston in The Ten Commandments (1956) and the make-up tests for Planet of the Apes (1968).

In his book The Actor's Life: Journal 1956-1976, Heston wrote "He knew while we were shooting, though we did not, that he was terminally ill. He never missed an hour of work, nor was late to a call. He never was less than the consummate professional he had been all his life. I'm still haunted, though, by the knowledge that the very last scene he played in the picture, which he knew was the last day's acting he would ever do, was his death scene. I know why I was so overwhelmingly moved playing it with him."

Wow, I did not know that Robinson knew he was dying when he made it. It makes a great scene even more moving.
