    HELL DRIVERS.....i think ;)

    Patrick McGoohan and Stanley Baker

    Awesome film about ruffty tuffty tipper drivers in the 50s or 60s...fast action, awesome driving in country roads...brilliant.

    I often thought, even before i considered myself a cyclist,.....christ help anyone coming the opposite direction on a bike...you'd be flattened in a second.

    Am i REALLY showing my age, or are old films universally liked....whats yours ?

    The Odd Couple but I'm not sure it's old enough.

    How old is old?

    Has anyone seen a film from the 70s called Static?

    It's about a guy who's parents die and he makes a machine to talk to them in heaven?

    He also holds up a bus to get publicity for it. It sounds strange but it is amazing
