Wildcard X: The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming

This is the first movie I ever remember having a crush on a character: the blond Russian sailor. Heck, I think I had a little bit of a crush on Alan Arkin, too. And the classic line, "E-mer-gency, e-mer-gency, everybody to get from street." I loved this movie and laughed and laughed. I wonder if it would seem as funny today?

Trivia from IMDb: 

The film was Francis Ford Coppola's $800,000 master's thesis at U.C.L.A film school in 1966.

AKA "A Man and a Woman" won the Oscar for best foreign language film, also best original screenplay.  Also won the palme d'or at Cannes (actually tied with "Signore e signori".)

I've never seen this film, yet I can remember hearing the indelibly Sixties theme music from quite a while back. That tune's been in my head a lot lately, for some reason.

I came across a color still of this film just yesterday, in a general history of world cinema, that showed Aimée at perhaps her loveliest in a composition of great elegance and sensuality. I've also never seen Jacques Demy's 1961 debut feature Lola, also starring Aimée, which is considered one of the breakthroughs of the French New Wave.

Yes, I remember drive-ins; they were in their last dying gasps when I was a child here in Texas. The last time I remember being at one was circa 1979, with my older cousins, at a drive-in in the Austin area, seeing some cheap exploitation movie (a la The Kentucky Fried Movie)--sometime thereafter, I believe that same drive-in went over to showing strictly porn, and I don't even think it physically exists anymore.

I do!  The one in my home town operated up until 1982! I saw Star Wars there the first time.   One of the few left operating, with three screens  :D and a playground  :o , is about a 45 minute drive from us now.  Bob and I will go one or twice in the summertime because we can take the dogs AND kiss and cuddle in the front seat.  ;) It's always very busy no matter what the feature(s).

Drive ins

We have two drive ins here in Maine that are still operational on a seasonal basis. I haven't been in awhile. Growing up in NY, there was a very fancy one that was open year round; it had heaters you could hang on the car window along with the speakers.

There's still a drive-in on Cape Cod, in Wellfleet.
