The Magnificent seven
The Searchers
The Bridges of Toko Ri
The Guns of Navarone
The Dam Busters
Bridge on the river Kwai

Yeh gotta sayI’m from the generation that went to the “movies”not the “pictures”
Bazza (who I respect big time as an old school knowledge ) also caught me out with “peanut butter “ instead of peanut paste. I’ve been saying that all my life I never knew

The pedants go a bit over the top sometimes. I bet Bazza says ‘soft drink’ like everyone else and not ‘cool drink’ as we used to do.
He wouldn’t say ‘soda’ though.


Funny enough I still use Cool Drink a lot, Soft Drink has creept in though for me as well,,,

Love Sir Les.

Film was pretty popular in the 70s and early 80s when the Australian "Film" industry boomed.

Unfortunately "pictures" and "wireless" are in declining use.

The Anzacs TV series was pretty good at the time, I know they spent a lot of time on getting the detail correct and Paul Hogan did well in it, as you say it wasnt full of the usual pommie cliche like Gallipoli, there was a English bloke actually with the crew through the series.

I notice Guns of Navarone another great one - was on GEM on the weekend, came at a time in late 50s and 60s when big budget WW II epics were hitting the screens, Bridge on the River Kwai, Great Escape, Longest Day, I think the actors really made these movies, particularly as they had real military experience themselves. Hows Richard Todd, he was actually at Pegagus Bridge in real life and then made the movie about it, and work his beret from the real battle.

bazza; i agree 100 per cent on the ANZACS -- they even got the attitude of the Germans right, especially that of the officer corps. I will never forget that officer promising to take revenge on the commonwealth troops, even as the Australians passed on some of their food to his soldiers. That was all the hiter war was about: revenge, plus lebensraum added as an ideological prop.
