Actually, checking, Impqueen has just watched the highest 70s entry on my film list.

Am I allowed Bill Douglas as a single entry?


I'm ok with it, yeah, it's up to TRM to agree though.

It doesn't make my top 500 (Yes, I did make that list) and it's one of my favourite Disney films.

I think the 70's were a poor decade for Disney's animated feature department. Robin Hood is basically made from the scraps of all the films that came before it and IMO it shows. By far the cheapest looking Disney film I've seen. Ustinov is funny in it though.

Clearly the best thing Disney made in the 70's was The World's Greatest Athlete

Ustinov makes it - Prince John is priceless. But yeah, the 70s were bad for Disney (though the music in the Aristocats is not bad) - they seemed to have run out of steam until the late 80s.

I'm wondering what will top this poll, as Stand By Me was a suprise in the 80s one (a very worthy winner though, one of my favourite films).

Sleeping Dogs is the better 1970s Warren Oates-starring film.

If anyone has the Horror CHannel then at 10.55pm tonight (and then at +1) Fright - not Peter Collinson's best film but I'd lay odds it will turn up on at least one 70s list. Ian Bannen is particularly good in it.

It might not actually make my list. Cutting it down to 100 is a nightmare. This is by far the most difficult list for me.

As in the terrible trio of The Ask, His Arse and Tony Blair's father-in-law? TRM would have to give the final yay or nay, my instinct would be no, simply because they're not as tightly linked as the Douglas trilogy.

What was Val Guest thinking 

Wouldn't that be a similar idea to including Carry On as a single entry?

I think the Confessions have more of a case for a single entry than the Carry On series, mainly because they're all coming from the same literary source. Even if that source was someone writing under a pseudonym. Did you know that the writer of the original novels also wrote the screenplay for The Spy Who Loved Me? It's a shame we never got adaptations of Confessions from a Haunted House or Nudist Colony though.

Series of cheesy sex-comedies from the 70s in which Robin Askwith has sex with an unbelievable number of women. Although Confessions of a Pop Performer is obviously magnificent and is more deserving of a place on this list than The Towering Inferno.

If anyone really wants to vote for Askwithy brilliance, Horror Hospital should be their first stop.

I didn't. That is very weird!

I think TRM was fibbing. If it's anything like when I was young, the Confessions films - especially as Channel 5 was so fond of them - will have been keen viewing material for young men.

Moonraker too. I like to think that he really wanted Askwith to take over as Bond when Moore stepped down.

Weren't C5 also showing Russ Meyer a lot at that point? Meyer wins.

Me too, actually. I was considering doing a quick list of 100 films from the 70s and 80s that people needed to see and then I remembered about this and rushed to check the deadline.

Is that icon because of the list-rigging you were all planning? I ripped the audios from Still Game ages ago and was listening to their Towering Inferno ep. Still say it's better than the film.

Nope, it's because I'm so snowed under it's 22.40 and I'm still working and everything else has gone to pot and I am listless (possibly in both possible uses of the word)

Did you know Geoffrey was in Henry IV Pt 2 next week?
