Dig out the 1977 Roy Scheider classic "Sorcerer". The first parts of the movie are dated and somewhat hokey, but most of the picture takes place in the jungle, and is wonderfully gritty and realistic, and at the very least, you can just sit and dig the Tangerine Dream sountrack.

My favorite musical was Astaire/Charisse in "Bandwagon".

Speaking of Scheider, I really liked "The Seven-ups", great car chase scene. Probably doesn't qualify as obscure, but a good, lesser known classic.

I liked that one a lot. It's funny that an Oscar winning performance could be considered obscure, but I think it does qualify; I doubt that most people, at least say under thirty, have ever even heard of it let alone seen it.

Either we're ancient or have good taste...I'd like to think the latter...

I'll go with that if you will. And just to prove it, don't look now but I think it's the cocktail hour. Bottoms up!

Tony Curtis, 40 Pounds of Trouble, The Rat Race and Goodbye Charlie! Tony tried to play a heavy in a few roles; he pulled it off in The Boston Strangler. But I remember the one he did, I'm laughing as I think of it, where he played Sam Giancana, the mob boss. Tony couldn't pull off mean very well, and there was one scene where I swear he growled. Much better at light fare; as were the ones listed above. Have a good night!

I just realized about the 'obscure' thing...I guess most of mine aren't really obscure.
