  • SUMMERSTOCK - Missed It Again
  • Don't know how many if any have ever seen the 1950 movie "SUMMERSTOCK" starring Judy Garland and Gene Kelly, in which Judy and her mom (played by Marjorie Main) trade the use of their farm's barn out to a musical troupe for help gathering crops. In the movie, Phil Silvers, who plays one of the troupe's honchos, takes the family's new 8N out for a joy ride and crashes it big time, scattering various parts along the ground and tree limbs! Additional scenes show the N being resurrected and near the end of the film, the tractor once again looks fresh off the assembly line. The movie played earlier today on Direct TV's Turner Classic Movies channel, but as usual when the film is aired, I saw only the last few minutes of it. It is a good entertaining film with top notch stars to watch if you're into old movies!

  • Love that movie, I actually like almost all Gene Kelly movies, but that number he does with the newspaper is one of the best.

  • Yep, we had a list started somewhere on movie/TV sightings. Checkout John Wayne in "The High & The Mighty" -there's a Moto-Tug at the end of the movie when they finally land. It's painted yellow as they were for use after WWII and reconditioned for the Korean Conflict...

  • Throttle stuck at idle. Used one brake to stop with, accelerated from the stop without shifting gears....

  • It's amazing how well you can drive when being Towed from the Camera vehicle. I wonder if that was steam coming out of the radiator or maybe some dry Ice in there. Nice looking ride.
