I remember before the internet and before streaming flipping through the channels and seeing what is on there was one movie I always had to stop and watch. One memory I have is while I was in graduate school, studying for finals I took a break and flipped through the TV channels just to kill a few minutes and clear my mind and I came across THE MOVIE and of course I watched it. For any other movie I could have put in a VHS and recorded it. For this one I had to stop and watch.
That movie was Stalag 17. If I came across it, I had to watch, even if it was almost over.
I grew up watching Hogan’s Heroes and this was the father of the show. While it had its humorous moments it also showed the tragedy of war. I just searched and there is a Blu Ray for $10.00. I may need to go ahead and buy it.
