November 9th, 2014: Top Secret! (1984)

Cast and Crew: Lucy Gutteridge, Peter Cushing, Michael Gough, Omar Sharif

What It’s About: American Rock and Roll star Nick Rivers (Val Kilmer) travels to East Germany to perform in a music festival, but soon finds himself drawn into helping the French Resistance stop the East German government from launching their plan for world domination.

Why Watch it Today?: The Berlin Wall fell today in 1989, so why not celebrate with this madcap spoof of Elvis movies, World War Two resistance movies, The Blue Lagoon and Cold War spy movies from Jerry and David Zucker and Jim Abrams?
