I watched "Uncommon Valor" with Gene Hackman last night and there was a good bit of Thompson action in it. Had at least three 1928's thought I saw one "L" sight possibly one M1A1. They removed the comps so somtimes it was hard to see if they were switching them around. And Patrick Swayze was using a BAR. Pretty cool stuff..

I saw it a few times as a kid and back then they were all just guns.

I watched it again a few years ago and funny how the perspective has change and now they were not guns but each unique individuals.

The movie actually became more fun to watch.

I saw Uncommon Valor the other night. It is funny how one's perspective changes with time. I think I was 16 or so when I first saw the movie in '84. I knew at the time what the guns were, but I never noticed the "little things" like I do now. I noticed the other night that the M1928A1 (I'm guessing on that one) that Blaster had on the bridge didn't seem to have any rear sights at all! Movie guns are a hoot sometimes, aren't they?

Speaking of movies.... Just saw Blues Bros again last night and was trying to figger out if one of the officers cop.gif on the patrol boat at the end of the movie was toting a Thompson....
