Rent "Simone"...

There are a few scenes with Airstreams in the movie "Simone" with Al Pacino that came out on video/DVD about a month or so ago. I now realize that there are people on this forum that get just as nutty as me to see an AS imotalized on celluloid. It was not a bad movie either...

Another Airstream type in the movies...

I just saw Identity this evening. For those who have seen it and those who will see it, I saw what looked like a very old Airstream in the movie. It was in the picture several times with a good interior shot as well. I was kind of thinking it looked like one of those "Avon" types, but I am no expert when it comes to the legacy Airstreams.

At any rate it was one of my favorite parts of the movie.

Has anyone ever put together a list of AS in the movies. I have seen them in;
8 legged freaks,
Raising Arizona,
Long, long trailer (duh),
and a lot of others. It would be interesting to see a complete list.

One of the big, but failed movie was "Mars Attacks" by Tim Burton.

Matt LeBlanc's RV was no longer water-tight in the movie "Charlie's Angels", which aired last night, ABC. It got pretty perforated from a couple of semi-auto toting dudes. It was a longer trailer. Not sure which one. The interiors look as if it was shot on a set, as it appeared bigger than Airstreams I have seen....

I rented that movie this weekend. Aside from the Airstreams, it was hilarious!! I loved it. Don't know why I never heard of it before.

I also rented "A Perfect World" with Clint Eastwood. It has an Airstream in the central plot. A good crime movie.

This seems to be the definitive Airstreams in the Movies site:

I just finished watching the Airstream Caravan videos that I bought from the VAC. They were great! I'd love to find one of those old Ford or International 4x4 pickups to pull the Overlander around with (short trips only). I also got a copy of "Roam Sweet Home" which too was fun to watch.

There were several threads started here too, which list some additional ones...actually, I'm going to merge all these threads with the earliest one...so they'll all be in one place.

You can add this to the list!

Satellite Soul is a Christian rock band that tours the county in an Airstream trailer. Inside the cover of this album it says that Airstream trailers are the official trailer of Satellite Soul.

I have the CD and play it in my MH!

Another Airstream Movie

Check out "Baghdad Cafe". It is a small cult film available at a good video store. Has nothing to do with Baghdad, by the way. Jack Palance is one of the characters and he lives behind the Baghdad Cafe (which is located somewhere in the middle of the Mojave desert) in an old Airstream. This is a rather ecentric German-produced movie, but it's a real feel-good flick. I highly recommend it if your taste in movies includes something a bit off-beat. As a frame of reference, Mars Attacks (referred to in the string above) is one of my favorite comedies.

Mike

I just rented "Baghdad Cafe" a few weeks ago. It is a bit off the wall, but I enjoyed it. Jack Palance and his Airstream get some good viewing throughout the movie.

What really knocked me out was the haunting theme song, "Calling You". I really have to learn how to play that on my guitar!
Come to think of it, we have some musicians on this forum. Can anyone TAB that song?
