I was out shopping today, and I bought quite a few DVDís. Most were 70ís movies. When I was younger, my friends and I always watched them on BBC2 late on Sunday evenings.Many were cult-classics. Just wondering if anyone had a particular favourite? :)

Personally I liked:
Jaws
Alien



Some are cult :
Midnight Express
Family Plot (76)
A clockwork Orange
The Exorcist
L'empire des sens (Oshima)

And actually, my favourite "old movie" is much older: it's Ted Browning's "Freaks" (1932)

In no particular order:

The Godfather
The Godfather Part II
Rocky
Shaft
Foxy Brown (a perfect movie for Serena)
Blacula
Blazing Saddles (in today's PC society, there's no way this one gets remade)
The Longest Yard (Adam Sandler? :fiery: :fiery: )
Kramer vs. Kramer
The Mack

You'll Like My Mother (1972) and The Swarm (1978) are my favourites bar none.

Neely, I think you hit a high note with "Look What Happened to Rosemary's Baby" (1976).

I like how you broke out of the mold and instead of resorting to horror flicks when you're old and unemployable, you just jumped right in in your 30's. That trailblazing, hon!

Hel, don't remind me! Besides that was a TV movie AND I co-starred with "actresses" Tina Louise and Donna Mills. :o

Tina Louise an actress, my ass! Donna Mills is Meryl Street next to her.

I can only hope you got top billing, Neely. So, is it true that Tina's a tramp? Did she hit on Gomez when he would visit you on the set?

Exactly, Hel. Louise and Mills tried to throw their weight around on the set but I was THE LEAD. Hon, even vets Ruth Gordon, Broderick Crawford and Ray Milland were billed lower than me.

Louise knew better than to cross me re: John so she made a play for George Maharis (as did Mills) but those clueless tarts didn't have a clue that Maharis was light in his loafers. Hon, you know Ted Casablanca taught me at least that much. Those silly "actresses". Ha!

That must have been some TV-movie, why didn't they just rename it "Where Old Oscar Winners Come to Die."

Ray Milland, I have such fond memories, Beau Geste really put me on the map and we both were looking out best in Reap the Wild Wind. He's the one who turned me onto doing cigarette ads for some extra dough, and BOY OH BOY did I need it supporing Jess, the twins, mom, AND Florence!

Excellent choices.

Family Plot, was this Hitchcock's last movie? That starred Bruce Dern & Karen Black.
