The Last Waltz
Some music movies that I'll always watch when they come on----
Yankee Doodle Dandy
The Glenn Miller Story
Stars and Stripes Forever
Not rock, but they're great films!!
I was just about to post that! Ya stole my thunder. Lol
Only because it was so hilariously bad, I submit Rhinestone.
I’ll throw Urban Cowboy out to ya, the scenes at Gilley’s with the late Charlie Daniels, for example.
These are some real influential movies i saw at a young age and i still love them
I will not accept Bro's or their "Country"
Hard Core Logo
No One Knows About Persian Cats
I really wanted to like Purple Rain but could never sit through it. Was never a Prince fan even though I respected his chops. Maybe I'm too old.
Haven't thought of this in years
First time I ever saw Yankee Doodle Dandy was on TV in the 70s. Until then, I had thought of Jimmy Cagney as an actor who played only gangsters. It was a revelation to me to discover that the man could dance!
Yup, he was a hoofer, like Christopher Walken. I do enjoy his gangster stuff ("Top o' the world, Ma!), but he was so much more. Even Edward G. Robinson did movies other than gangsters.
One aspect of "Yankee Doodle Dandy" that I appreciate is the backstage stuff most folks wouldn't notice. During the "Yankee Doodle Dandy" tune, while Cagney's dancing all over the place, I really watched the work of the follow spot operator, having spent many, many hours hugging a Super Trooper. The spot op is every bit of a master of his craft as Cagney is.
Does anyone remember "Zachariah (the First Electric Western)" with the James Gang, The New York Rock and Roll Ensemble, Elvin Jones, Country Joe and the Fish, and others?
It's about music videos but still my favourite is Tapeheads ...
