Talk about odd movie watching yesterday:
Yes, I'm a sucker for cheesy late 1950s/early 60s teen flicks and this Sandra Dee classic is a great film. The horrible green screen effects of them surfing alone is worth a chuckle or 2. A fun film overall.
Palm Springs Weekend
Another cheesy teen bedroom comedy starring Troy Donahue, Stephanie Powers, Connie Stevens, Jerry Van Dyke, Bill Mumy, Ty Hardin and a very slim and handsome Robert Conrad. Teenagers partying in Palm Springs on their break.. music, swimming, swinging music and brawls ensue. Some laughs but mainly I watch it for the furniture and the cars.
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
My favorite of the "Written & Directed by" John Hughes; probably my favorite of his overall. Steve Martin and John Candy star in this comedy classic as Martin's trying to get home to Chicago for Thanksgiving but weather prohibits him to getting a direct flight. Candy is the man that'll get him home at any cost. Great writing, brilliant comedic acting and just a wonderful movie any time of the year.
