    I'm one of the olde phartes at work. Some of the guys weren't even born when I hired in. We were talking about the movie "Billy Jack" the other day. Back in the late 60's and early 70's, it was one of the hottest action movies there were. Other movies that some of the guys have never heard of are;
    Blues Brothers
    Gator
    White Lightning
    Gone in 60 Seconds. The original before they edited it and made it PC.
    Thunder Road
    Electraglide in Blue.

    Any other suggestions for movies the new kids ought to watch?

    I watched Bullitt the Movie the other day on TCM and damn that was a crappy movie, except for the car chase, and that was lamer then I remembered,Aloha Bobby and Rose, saw that at the theater, and just as the movie let out , and the crowd hit the street, a cop car was rolling by and everyone started yelling at them, HAA HA , if you have seen the movie you would understand. Citizen Kane, would be on my list of movies that everyone should watch

    The Eiger Sanction, was good as well, and A Clockwork Orange was also worth seeing, by anyone of age.
