The Best Movies You've Never Heard Of

<< Back to Speaking Topics List

Astronaut220rWhat do “El Norte,” “The Astronaut
Farmer,” and “The Weather Man” have in common?

They are extremely engaging movies you may
never have heard of … until now.  And that's just the tip of the iceberg of cinematic gems that for one reason or another never attracted a mass audience following.

In this PowerPoint and film clip presentation lasting a little over an hour, we'll fill up your Netflix or movie channel "want to see" list with a dozen or more great movies you may have missed.

Here's what Movie Memories fan Sandra Barr emailed to us after enjoying the "Best Movies You've Never Heard Of" presentation:

Dear Larry,

I have seen you a few times in class
at Richland at the Emeritus Program. On one occasion you introduced us to the
Ten Best Movies You've Never Seen. One of those movies was the Astronaut
Farmer. I was finally able to get it to the top of my Netflix List and saw it
last week.

I don't remember the last time I cried and then laughed out loud and
then cried and laughed at the same time for as extended a period of time as I
did throughout The Astronaut Farmer. I thank you for introducing me to this
outstanding movie.

To think I might have missed it is incomprehensible! You
have done a very fine deed by making us aware of these movies that somehow
never made it to the front pages of the Entertainment Sections! Thank you so
much!

Sandra Barr

Marion or The Duke: It's all John Wayne

Stagecoach300r
John Wayne about to hitch a ride to fame as The Ringo Kid in "Stagecoach" (1939).

So what's your favorite Marion Robert Morrison movie?

We're talking the late, great "everyman" movie star John Wayne, of course.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance starring The Duke, Jimmy Stewart, Vera Miles and Lee Marvin as the title character is my favorite, Pilgrim.   That heartfelt-yet-hard hitting Western of love, unrequited and otherwise, giant pan-fried steaks and Marvin as quite possibly one of the Top 5 big screen baddies of all time, only edges out True Grit by an eyepatch or two.
