Welcome back guys I thought this thread was dead. It was 16 days and nothing. Are we going on or is this the end.

Like alot of HOT Topics, they have a habit of dying out, and habit of gaining popularity now and again.

See I found another one :lol: This is a screen capture of a rather obsure one, a movie, T.V. movie I watched a few times on when I was in Alaska, it was shown on HBO, we had HBO in the barracks starting around the winter of 1982, you had to of course pay to have it, the guys in the room next to me had it, but I didn't, but I swear, through out the whole time till I got out in Dec 82 I got HBO for free by mirly pluging my small T.V into a certain outlet, the outlet on the other side of their wall in the next room, and Voila, HBO came on, an incredible fluke, I never could explain why it happened, it was the damndest thing.

 

So what T.V. movie is this from?

Bingo, I didn't think anyone would get that one for awhile, not after I gave a few clues that is.

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081377/

 

 

The full scene with Hermann.

 

 

I actully got The Private History of a Campaign That Failed on VHS, It apparently is not available on DVD, that and the companion movie, which ran on HBO at the same time, back to back in the fall of 1982, Twain's or based on Twain, The Mysterious Stranger, again only on VHS.

I seem to recall that Rabinoff was based on a real life FSSF man, a nut job, he was KIA in the South of France IIRC not Anzio, does anybody recall this info?

Did anyone ever recall this info? I would be very interested in the story.

Once Before I Die (1966)

 

I had remembered seeing that movie and that Richard Jaeckle was in it but never the name. Somehow I thought Bo Derek was the female lead, but was Ursula Andress instead , however John Derek was also in the cast. They were all playing polo when the Japanese attacked.

Yes sir! I didn't see it on the list so I figured it would be tough, but great movie and one of the few Plummer was in!
