Since I have no life, I am doing what I do on most Friday nights, staying home and watching a couple of movies. I went by best buy and found out that they had a film there that was on my short list. Zero Hour with Dana Andrews and Sterling Hayden.
For those of you that aren't familiar with this 1957 film about a former Canadian RAF pilot named Ted Stryker, who's traumatized by a botched raid he lead in WWII. Anyway he can't hold a job and his wife has just run off with their son named Joey. So anyway he goes to the airport to catch the cross-canada charter DC-4 that his wife is running away on to try and work things out. As some of you might have guessed he doesn't have the fish on the airplane.
I knew that the Zanuks had parodied this film when they made t only took until about the first 15 minutes of the film to really realize how much they ripped off of the older film. That and the shock when I realized that they mentioned "Regina" in a film from 1957, that was the era of the husband and wife in twin beds for gods sake!
Anybody else ever see something and be shocked at the level it was ripped something else. The only thing I can compare it to is watching Citizen Kane and how many times the Simpsons ripped that film off for episodes.
Anybody else out there have any other good examples.
