In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

It's one of Jimmy Stewart's best roles, IMHO.

Heh, I love that film. Planes and flight feature so often in Miyazaki's films that I think he must be an aviation nut.

Excellent! Thanks for the heads up, semmern, I didn't know they were working on another film. The cinematography in that teaser looks to be at least as stunning as One Six Right.

Lionel Charlet's short films are worth a look also. There are several free sample downloads on the site.

Great Waldo Pepper

from dvdverdict.com:

When The Great Waldo Pepper hit theaters in 1975, it had a lot going for it. Director George Roy Hill (Slaughterhouse Five) and Robert Redford (The Way We Were, Indecent Proposal) had worked together on the award-winning 1969 hit Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and were fresh from their 1973 Oscar winner, The Sting. The script is by Oscar-winner William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Princess Bride). Add in strong supporting appearances by Susan Sarandon, Bo Svenson, and Margot Kidder (Superman), and you should have the recipe for a great movie.

It all succeeds, to one degree or another, largely on the strength of the acting performances and some truly breathtaking aerial footage. Waldo makes his living doing aerial stunts, and the movie faithfully reproduces them on film. Remember, this came out in 1975, two years before George Lucas would revolutionize special effects with Star Wars, and long before the days of CGI animation. The aerial shots do have some problems, including some very badly looped dialogue, but for the most part they are effective and exciting.

Put it all together and you have a fun, enjoyable movie experience for the whole family. The story may be a bit of a stretch at times, but with Redford's easygoing charm and lots of exciting flight scenes, you will hardly notice. There are some poignant moments as well, along with drama and character development and all those things that adults seem to want when they watch movies.

You serious? smile

Hmmm..I always thought his role on "An Officer and a Gentleman" was his finest ever.

I will also say that several films have already been mentioned on this thread which I've never seen so this was a good thread to start Stormtrooper. Thanks!

I saw that one! Good flick.

Is this the same Panzer who hadn't seen "China Town"?
