Movie Clip Wednesday - Best Non-Animated Disney.

Welcome to Movie Clip Wednesday. Boxer continues to shadow box for vodka and is in her busy time so  now I'm driving the bus. "People kept ringing the bell!"

 Most of you know how it works but if you're new here (for which I greatly thank you) here's how it works. A theme is picked each week. You choose a movie to fit the theme and find a clip, preferably three minutes or less, and post it on your blog. Announce in the comment section of this post that you are up and we'll come and pay you a visit. It's simple really.

Tried for a tough one this week and it was,but I had one in the back of my mind the entire time. It's good to be the meme master.  Old Yeller  and Swiss Family Robinson are great flicks.  How about the original Parent Trap with Haley Mills who I think was my first big screen crush.  Many, many to choose from but my favorites growing up all had the same lead actor, the same main character, the same basic plot and were set at a place where we all wanted to go to college.  That's right boys and girls, I'm talking about Medfield College and one of the greatest trilogies of all time The Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes, Now You See Him Now You Don't, and lastly The Strongest Man in the World.  Dexter Riley was the hero played by the great and talented Snake Plisken I mean Kurt Russell.

Of the three Now You See Him, Now You Don't is my favorite.  These movies had it all, token you know what guy (not trying to be racist but hey those are the facts), the dumb friend based on Shaggy, cute girl that Dexter could not quite get with, Cesar Romero the bad guy who was always having his plans mess up by those meddling kids.  I love the 70's.

I'm really starting to get pissed off when I find the perfect clip on youtube and it's "disabled by request".  Who would do such a thing?

You and I wrote about the same movies but we made different picks. I love Snake Russel in TCWTS. I think his Dexter character was a warm up for his Rudy Russo character in Used Cars (a funny, little flick if you've never seen it). Most Disney flicks are for kids and can get kind of sappy, but there are a few goodd ones like this.

I'm up at the Buzzkill with the family that builds together. I'll be around later tonight to visit everyone.

Happy MCW!

Princess, I'll be over sometime today.

Buzz, love "Used Cars". I actually have a script in my head using it as a premise for the equipment business. So many scenes that I'll find a couple to post on the blog for you.

Good morning MRM,

Gotta love the way they just roll that bug right back up on its tires and take off down the road on the rim. That was of fun clip.

I'm up from the deep.

I dont think I can have watched any of these films - or if I did, they certainly made no impact :(

Late to tell you but I am up!

I haven't seen this one, and I don't even believe that I haven't. And let me get all nostalgic about those early Kurt Russell movies. Loved them! Do you remember the boy scout one called "Follow Me Boys"? I almost went with 101 Dalmations because it was one of their best, I do believe. Cruella Deville, love love love.

I'm not much of a Disney fan, so I didn't play this week. If I had, though, I would have picked Old Yeller. Good movie.

Happy MCW and thanks once again for hosting!
