TMT: Now, Back Then

This is the next entry in a Theatre… a Movie… and a Time, a series that was begun here. My colleague Kevin, based on the strength of his writing and reader reaction to his wonderful guest post here, gets the credit for bringing this film and memory to the fore:

“Not only in its projection of overall firepower with Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries”, but also in the wide variety of mechanized mayhem. From the Air Cavalry’s troops and their assembled M-16s. To the pintle mounted M-60s, pylon mounted quad M-2 Heavy Barreled .50 caliber Browning Machine Guns and pod mounted High Velocity Artillery (HIVAR) Rockets. The soundtrack fits the montage like a custom fitted suit. Scratchy voice overs and all. Culminating in a piece of film that is powerful, random and deadly.”
