Here's my tribute to all the great movies and television series of the 1970's I grew up watching as a kid. This has been a piece i've wanted to do for years and am happy to have finally finished it. How many of these do you remember or have you caught any of them in the intervening years on YouTube, Netflix, Hulu etc. A lot of the TV shows are a product of their time and are still wonderfully entertaining because of it. I can not recommend Columbo enough, it was really the impetus to finally do this piece! The motion pictures represented in this montage are all classics..... Jaws and The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 being two of my absolute favorites of all time.
LOVE Pelham............I'm assuming you've seen Matthau in Don Siegels movie Charley Varrick, if you haven't give it a watch, another great early 70's crime drama with Walter playing really against type!
Yup! Seen it. I liked it, but it doesn't hold a candle to Pelham. I stumbled across Pelham one night back in the late 80's and was riveted by Matthau. He plays everything so natural in his films. I smile every time I catch one of his movies. 70's films just resonate. Can't explain it
Heh, I was thinking of doing something similar with the cops of today. Sort of a super team of today's detectives. Horatio from CSI Miami, Goren from Criminal Intent, Grissom from CSI, Bones from Bones, the guy from Lie to Me, Brenda Lee Johnson from Closer, Gibbs from NCIS, maybe the Mentalist, Monk, and Shawn from Psych, etc. No criminal would ever get away.
wow! man this brings back memories. ANd tells me how much tv i used to watch as a kid. I know all of those characters and watched at least a few episodes of the all those shows. several shows I saw them all. Barreta , Starsky and Hutch, Charlies angel's, SWAT, Chips, Adam 12, Qunicy, Barney Miller, Mccloud, COLUMBO, MOD SQUAD, and the ..the name escapes me but the Thief turn detective show.
