One of the things I really really didn't like about the movie. Not only was it a obligatory "sacrificial lamb" killing, it didn't make sense, and I frankly don't know how the bad guys could pull it off. Also, Gemma's such a sweetie, how could they....

She's great in PRINCE OF PERSIA THE SANDS OF TIME. Director said something like, "When I look at her lovely neck, I feel very very old."

Saw it at Target super-cheap, thought of adding it to my very selective Bond library, passed.

Correct. Bob Redford learns the perils of having Too Many Secrets.

Despite the antiquated technology, the movie holds up as a very fun caper. The plot that hinges on NSA wiretapping and illegal surveillance of American citizens is remarkably still timely.

Ice Station Zebra (1968). Directed by John Sturges. Loaded with 60's star power - Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine, Patrick McGoohan and football player turned actor Jim Brown. Music by Michel Legrand.

Loosely based on the 1963 Alistair MacLean novel of cold-war suspense and espionage. The movie was filmed in Super Panavision 70 (6-Track) and was quite the spectacle on a large Cinerama screen. It was given the roadshow treatment complete with overture, entr'acte, intermission and exit music. I saw it 2 or 3 times on the big screen before it exited theaters.

Patrick McGoohan had to be rescued during the flooding scene (depicted in screenshots) by a diver when his foot got trapped in the machinery. This film helped resurrect Rock Hudson's flagging career and was one of Howard Hughes' favorite movies.

The film was released on Blu-ray in 2012. Stories were circulated in 2013 that the movie was going to be remade with director Christopher McQuarrie at the helm.

Caught the dvd fr the library last year (has the overture/walk-in music, intermission music), tempted by the BD. Great adventure in the old fashioned sense. Loved McGoohan in it (I think he did it right after THE PRISONER series, or something; definitely channeling the same psyche). Interesting twists and suspense in the second half. ... Great choice. Don't suppose the BD has isolated music track? TT has me spoiled! It is a great score IIRC.


... The screencap from Star Wars was not a "name this," you'd have to've lived in a cave for 40 years, or just arrived from Alpha Centauri, not to know that.

THIS you can try naming, though. 90s flick.

Right you are. Boy I wish I'd known about the CC BD release, they're selling upwards to $100 now. I want it, but not at that price point. Waiting for someone to do the same quality release for 2046.

Nope, oh my brother. Looks a little like Craig Wasson. Oh, here Wind I'm throwing Caution to you. Craig Wasson in Body Double. (He was in Ghost Story too, but I don't remember him screaming like a little sissy.)

Oh, Brian DePalma. Those days when every film he made had some over-the-top detail that had people in a damn tizzie. For Body Double, I believe it was a drill. Trying to recapture those genuine icky thrills in Carrie.

I'm going to assume that's a hint and thank ChromeJob for over-guessing with Ghost Story.
