Not sure how this opening plays to younger people. I think this stopped in the mid 90's or something.

And today there is 24 hour programming.


there are still some channels here that sign off for the night.... but at around 3 or 4 am
None do here anymore. At least that I know of.

I know I say this a lot but I do love the music to this film. Although I will say this is probably among my favorites. I think it ranks as one of Jerry Goldsmith's best.
I occasionally sleep to it.

it's got a really nice build of action and plot/character development, it's such a tricking thing for a film to accomplish correctly.

Steven Spielberg was going to direct this film but at the last minute got the go ahead from Universal to do ET so he could only produce. But he had done all of the preproduction on it including the story boarding which is why there are many Spielberg type of shots in the film.

So true. I think that's why it works so well no matter how many times you see it.
