He delivered the button-down comedy that helped win the war.

...unless he woke up in bed w/ Suzanne Pleshette & it was all a bad national nightmare...

hee hee...the 'motor pool driving instructor' bit always kills.

love this Morricone track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm mb:

hello alls. sounding great on the ol' transistor radio.
Avatar 7:15pm dale:

bob newhart mst have gotten the part because don rickles was unavailable.
Avatar 7:17pm dale:

god forbid there is zero pro-war sentiment in this country.
Avatar 7:17pm JakeGould:

War seemed so much better in the 1950s.
Avatar 7:22pm dale:

war seemed so much groovier in the 70s.
Avatar 7:23pm JakeGould:

Bob Newhart’s ability to pretend he was talking on the phone to someone else tricked the enemy for just long enough so the rest of the troops could be saved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...whose thinking SammyDavis?...
Avatar 7:24pm JakeGould:

@dale: Yeah, all that PTSD and Vietnam and heroin.

Anyone else remember that episode of “Baretta” where he was trying to help a junkie friend and kept on feeding him chocolate and orange juice?
Avatar 7:25pm JakeGould:

“Where Eagles Dare” is one of those double/triple-cross films where it took me two viewings and a couple of days to completely figure out the plot.
Avatar 7:25pm dale:

"imagine adolf hitler and winston churchill having a phone conversation....and it might go.....a little something....like this. 'adolf - adolf baby!'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Zetti:

I gotta revisit some of these films especially now for the music.
  7:26pm andrewb:

God dammit, I was gonna say where eagles dare. This film was played annually in Britain. Clint with two machine guns YEAH! but the Misfits song is better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm ultradamno:

I think I forgot the part where The Dirty Dozen all got "excited" together in a human tangle.
Avatar 7:27pm dale:

the movies channel (5.2) played some recently but they only seemed to be ones with george kennedy in them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...LeeMarvin & JamesCoburn...the Yin & Yang of the Universe...AlanWatts had a thing about it
...ok - I'm no good @ WarMovie chat...
Avatar 7:27pm JakeGould:

Even though two ska bands covered it, I think it’s amazing “Guns of Navarone” got so muck ska-mileage.
Avatar 7:29pm JakeGould:

…got so MUCH ska-mileage.
  7:31pm andrewb:

I honestly can't think of a truly bad ska song.
  7:34pm andrewb:

compared with rock, country ,disco where i can think of hundreds
Avatar 7:35pm JakeGould:

I think if WFMU had a 24/7 ska stream that would be something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I always think there should be a 24/7 of every Genre or Thang - just dial it in when you want it...For bad - there's '3rd Wave' ska like 'NoDoubt'...but nevermind that...
Avatar 7:40pm JakeGould:

Will say this: David Niven doesn’t look like he could throw a grenade let alone be a demolition’s expert in “The Guns of Navarone.” Him and Bob Newhart should have made a film: “The Inconceivables”
  7:44pm andrewb:

I wasn't really thinking ska revival. Plenty of duds there though No doubt were pretty solid. always felt fishbone opened and closed the door there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

People tell me Fishbone would hit the stage tossing their instruments to each other all the way across...
Don't know why don't hear more early Shadows - it's like UK Ventures - kewl as hell...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm ultradamno:

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Majestic & Eerie @ turns this Hermann - great score for great film.
Avatar 7:57pm dale:

david niven was everywhere for a decade. then he died, of course.
Avatar 7:58pm JakeGould:

Yeah, dying can stop you being everywhere like that.
Avatar 8:00pm JakeGould:

Imagine David Niven and Vincent Price arm wrestling. Ain’t that a sight!
