I have a dear place in my heart for The Rocketeer and hope some of you do as well. I figured it deserved it's own thread so enjoy and discuss your thoughts and opinions freely!
I love this movie so much. The music is great, the characters are great... Dalton is such an *******
and The Rocketeer costume looks fantastic on screen.
It's the perfect adventure movie; action, humor, romance and a little horror too (Lothar is actually based on a guy called Rondo Hatton. Look him up). I wish there were more movies like this one today... You know, "pulpy" movies.
