Correct. I've had it in mind for a while but The Love Bug moved it to the top of the list.

I was going to post this one but it would have been too easy.

The main thing is to have fun playing the game, and we all love movies.

Who cares how many posts I have, do you? ...Or the time that it took, do you? ...Because you sure did mention it, and has none to do with this game, this thread. You sound like a jealous guy, and you're not the only one.
Timing is important. ...Not the scores, not what you have, not numbers, but who you truly are in life...your knowledge...and how you share it...pass it on to the younger generations. And live and let live.

Have a cool drink, a refreshment.
No, I'm not serious at all. Settle down.

I really should get this on Blu-ray. The VHS copy I have just doesn't cut it anymore.
Correct. And just to emphasize the point: that's not a model. They really dropped a locomotive through a burning bridge. You can't have fun like that any more.

Review: The General (1926).

I can't imagine the sheer amount of "agencies" you'd have to wade through trying to get approval for something like that these days.

Before anyone asks WTF? Forum software has just been changed so that attachments now show up full-size. No point in embedding them any more.

This includes everything done in the past. Many are now super-sized.

And made into an action flick by Disney in the 1950s....

When I was growing up, we had an electric railroad set set on a full size tatami mat ... and repainted the locomotives to match the General and the Texas, complete with engine reversed do it would run in reverse as it did in the actual chase.

Regarding 1964's The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb, like William Frawley, Fred Clark always seemed to be middle aged or older no matter what year the movie or television show. I was surprised to learn he was only in his mid 50s when he died.
