|Plowing straight ahead come what may|
Just turned on the TV and TCM was on...missed the first part of The Day The Earth Stood Still...I came in where Gort was fixing to laser-eye Patrica Neal...a great cast and one of the better SiFi movies of all time ...one of my all time favorites! Now I'm sad I didn't know it was on (watching the space ship disappear into the blackness of space).
"we've gotta roll with the punches, learn to play all of our hunches
Making the best of what ever comes our way
Forget that blind ambition and learn to trust your intuition
Plowing straight ahead come what may
And theres a cowboy in the jungle"
Watch it as well. A classic

Here I am, thinking of Ringo's album cover, the Army of Darkness, the canadian rock band....and screw Keanu's remake.
So many references...

My dad and I really loved this movie (on re-runs) and it got me started on Sci-fi in general.
This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it. -Rear Admiral (Lower Half) Joshua Painter Played by Senator Fred Thompson
Yes, great flick. Can't tell you how many times I've watched it but try not to miss any time it's broadcast.
Place your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark.
“If in winning a race, you lose the respect of your fellow competitors, then you have won nothing” - Paul Elvstrom "The Great Dane" 1928 - 2016
Here's the soundtrack on YouTube. As impressive as the movie.
One of those Classics I try not to miss should I see it's on. SO well done.
|Do the next|
Always try and watch it when it's on. They played "War of the World" (the original) after that and then "Forbidden Planet". All excellent movies!
"The Marines I have seen around the world have, the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps." Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945
If you watched the Q&A after watching the Day the Earth Stood Still there was an interesting tidbit. Apparently the producers or some people had issues with the alien rising from the dead.
I dont like Ben Mankewwiez but I do like movie history.
Let all Men know thee, but no man know thee thoroughly: Men freely ford that see the shallows.

If you liked the movie, the book: "Farewell to the Master," Harry Bates, 1940.
"And gentlemen in England now abed, shall think themselves accursed they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks that fought with us upon Saint Crispin's Day"
This is a great movie, I caught this as well. This is a classic. I love Patricia Neal.
