Let’s take a look at Lloyd Bridges Top Five fro This Geeks World!
#5 The Fifth Musketeer – Lloyd Bridges, his son Beau Bridges, Ursula Andress, Olivia de Haviland, Ian McShane, Rex Harrison… holy crap! This is Hollywood gold. It is not an amazing great movie but it is a lot of fun to watch just for the Hollywood Royalty that is on the screen. 1979 didn’t do another Musketeer based movie this good.
#4 Hot Shots – Another parody movie that took potshots at pop culture like mad. Potentially this is one of Charlie Sheen’s best movies ever. Lloyd Bridges is Admiral Benson and his straight n-sell delivery provides some of the best humor in the movie.
#3 Honey I Blew up the Kids – Let’s through in a kids movie because Bridges really has done it all. Giant baby and a Holywood legend like Lloyd Bridges trying to stop the baby as it runs rampant through the town.
#2 High Noon – One of the best westerns of ALL time. 1052 High Noon stars: Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Lon Chaney Jr, Harry Morgan, Lee Van Cleef, and of course Lloyd Bridges. This film helped set the stereotype for the western genre as much as any other movie in film history.
#1 Airplane! – here is my pick for number one. Airplane is one of those movies from my childhood that ha snot lost a step. It is not very ‘woke’ but it is very funny and full of cameos from all of the pop culture icons of the day. Add to that the fact that this is a Zucker movie and you have something that is worth watching every time you get a chance.
