Off-Topic Discussion / Movies I have watched this week

I watched these Paul Newman films a short while ago.  The Verdict was very good.  I did not care for Absence Of Malice, though.

Eastwood News / Happy 90th birthday Clint.....
« on: July 05, 2020, 10:00:15 PM »
I guess I’m celebrating Clint’s 90th birthday with repeated viewings of Firefox.  It’s taken 38 years for me to finally, fully appreciate this movie and love it.  I still can’t get enough of it lately.  Until now it meant little having even seen it on the big screen...twice!  I only wish I could’ve enjoyed it as much then as I do now.  Better late than never.  The movie poster I bought recently has renewed meaning now.  I reluctantly purchased it only because of the significance it held for me.  It was the first big screen movie of Eastwood’s I’d seen after having become a fan.  My expectations were very high.  I anticipated the release date, watching the movie trailers on tv, reading about it and collecting picture ads from the Boston Globe and Boston Herald newspapers.  There was an article on Eastwood the weekend it opened in one of the Sunday papers, too.  I wish I still had that, I think it was Parade.  Unless my memory is mistaken, I believe it was a Boston Globe supplement.  In 1982 Clint was 52 years of age, a year younger that what I am now.   I’ve pondered with that having anything to do with my renewed interest in Firefox.  I don’t think so.  Here I am, 38 years later, apparently having come full circle.  “Punching in new coordinates.  I’m coming home.” 😉

Hi Gant, I’d say my favorite scene is where Gant (er, ah... the other Gant, that is 😉) steals the Firefox.  It’s a pivotal moment in the film, where the efforts of all involved have paid off.  While he’s only just gone airborne and has yet to successfully complete the mission, seeing the expression on Colonel Kontarsky’s face as Gant takes off is priceless.

I was going through some DVDs in my closet and saw my Firefox DVD. Might have to watch it sometime.
Great idea 👍🏻

What is your favourite scene in Firefox Jed ?
Wow, that’s a tough one, Gant.  I’ll have to give it some thought.  I’m still surprised I’m loving this film so much.  But, it’s a pleasant surprise.

        When I checked out Lady Godiva obviously Eastwood has basically a one line role as a young Saxon and I even noticed his speaking voice was dubbed. Eastwood must had been 25. The movie is horrible and it's even more surprising Maureen O'Hara was in such a stupid movie.
I noticed the same thing about Clint’s voice in Away All Boats.

I really like his scenes together with Clarke and Hawthorne...
This is a  very good scene. 

Gant: Supposing I get to liftoff and everything works well, what happens to you?

Baranovich: It doesn’t matter.

Gant:  What do you mean, it doesn’t matter?  I don’t understand why you’re all so willing to die.

Baranovich: I don’t expect you to understand.

Gant: Don’t you resent those people in London ordering your deaths like this?

Baranovich: Mr. Gant... you’re an American.  You’re a free man.  I’m not.  There is a difference.  If I resent the men in London who are ordering me to die...then it’s a small thing when compared with my resentment...of the KGB.

I always think of the similarities of these images of Clint.

Here he is in Tarantula, 1955:



Similarly in Firefox 1982:



Here’s what seems to be a publicity photo from Le Streghe (The Witches, 1967):



Again in Firefox:
