    Just finished relaxing with Bruce Brown's 'Endless Summer' and it got me to wondering what folks here watch if its not directly related to hot rods.

    I dig noir with early street scenes, like maybe 'Dark Passage' and 'On Dangerous Ground'

    Maybe early episodes of 'Hop Harrigan' or 'Comando Cody'

    What can you recommend?

    (Mods: if this is too OT, apols and pls delete)

    The new Julia Roberts flick "Changling" is set in 1928 Los Angeles, and has a LOT of restored "T's" in it... EXCELLENT movie to boot!

    I dont know if it's out on DVD yet, but you can sneak a peek for free on watch-movies.net

    Endless Summer is an amazing movie...

    As far as Film Noir goes, I was watching a movie called "Crive Wave" starring Sterling Hayden and about half way through one of the characters pulls up in a '29 Roadster, no fenders, no hood, flathead, three dueces... (it's been awhile since I've seen this, so it could be slightly different). But it totally threw me for a loop, it just came out of nowhere about halfway through the movie.
