Firefox (1982)

Eastwood-Impiccalo Piu in alto 640

Firefox was a 1983 film starring and directed by Clint Eastwood in which the protagonist must steal some sort of fictional Soviet “ultimate killing machine”, which from the looks of it and the “specs” is loosely modelled on the SR-71. I must confess I haven’t watched it, and after viewing the trailer I have no desire to do so. But I did find a lot of great stills from the film along with some promotional imagery. Love the suit.

Are you kidding me? That flick looks hilarious! Maybe instead of committing to watching it, I’ll just laugh at the trailer a few more times. I do dig the promo art tho.

Scott – you should sit down and watch it. The film is pretty legit and the soundtrack would probably be something you’re into as well.

Saw it as a kid as well. Liked it a lot, had a bit of the same feel as the original red dawn > without topping it though.

Pretty sure this is on Netflix if you that. I got about halfway thru once, havent made it back to finish it, but I remember it being fairly good. i TOTALLY want that arcade game that you sit in.

so after watching the preview I can deduce two things. One, this would make probably one of the best MST3K episodes ever, and two, that this video for some odd reason references me the what seems to be endless footage of airplanes crashing on YOUTUBE. coincidence? I think not.

Is it just me, or did it get a little Star Wars there, with the orange jump suit, then the narrow Deathstar like canyon…?

You post pics of it but don’t see the film?? What? C’mon Scott, treat yourself to an 80’s cheeseball guilty pleasure :) Firefox is the Mystic River of aircraft movies

My spouse and i have been now ecisattc Edward could complete his researching through your precious recommendations he got from your very own weblog. It’s not at all simplistic to simply be giving freely secrets the others might have been trying to sell. And we all know we have the blog owner to thank for that. All of the explanations you made, the simple web site menu, the relationships you can give support to promote it’s mostly astounding, and it’s really letting our son in addition to our family consider that that theme is enjoyable, and that’s very vital. Thank you for the whole lot!

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or stohmeing. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back..
