Stars: Michael J. Fox, Helen Slater, Richard Jordan, Margaret Whitton

A talented young man can't get an executive position without rising through the ranks, so he comes up with a shortcut, which also benefits his love life.
First of two late 1980s movies where Michael J. Fox played a yuppie in New York City. The second film was Bright Lights, Big City (1988).
Kristy McNichol was Herbert Ross' original choice for lead actress. She was fired two weeks before filming because of fears she might be difficult to work with, due to her bipolar disorder.
This film was inspired by the early Hollywood experiences of Steven Spielberg, who snuck onto the Universal Studios lot at a young age and began using an empty office as his own production office. The character of Brantley Foster does the same thing in this movie.
The original script was about a young man working for his uncle and falling in love with his uncle's prostitute. Universal executive Frank Price called in Jim Cash and Jack Epps, Jr. to re-write the script in eight weeks. They changed Christy Willis from a prostitute to a mistress, and added the complication with Aunt Vera.
When Brantley, a non-smoker, puts his feet up on the desk, he reveals dozens of burn marks. At the time, Michael J. Fox was a heavy smoker. The burn marks are the result of Fox extinguishing cigarettes with his shoe.
Michael J. Fox and Helen Slater's kissing scenes required a lot of height adjustments, because Fox is much shorter than Slater.
A sequel was proposed, but never made.
Filming concluded on August 1, 1986, and Michael J. Fox began filming the fifth season of Family Ties (1982) the next day.
Michael J. Fox filmed this film and Light of Day (1987) during the same hiatus in between the fourth and fifth seasons of Family Ties (1982)

Stars: Lindsay Wagner, Lee Majors, Richard Anderson, Lee Majors II, Sandra Bullock, Geraint Wyn Davies (Forever Knight)

Stars: Marty Van Hoe, Scott Schwartz, Mahlon Richmond, Vincent Schiavelli, Tristine Skyler, Charles Hallahan

Kids who live on a horse ranch decide to sell the excess manure as fertilizer, but their new company soon comes under fire from the state tax board.
The end scene where the kids are standing in the car with all their supporters around them was real. The extras in this scene was not done with any special effects, the crowd was gotten by a casting call in the local paper where it was filmed just one day before this scene was shot.

Stars: Henry Thomas, Dabney Coleman, Michael Murphy

A young boy and his imaginary friend end up on the run while in possession of a top-secret spy gadget.
The movie takes place in San Antonio, Texas which is also the birthplace of actor Henry Thomas who plays Davey.
The video game which is central to the movie had already been in development as production of the film began (the game then named "Agent X"); when Atari was consulted to provide a game as an element of the movie, they tweaked "Agent X" and renamed it Cloak & Dagger (1983). Dabney Coleman's character was then renamed "Agent X" in the movie. The game saw limited arcade release.
There is a poster in the game shop for the Atari 2600 video game console's E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). Henry Thomas, who played Davey in the film, also had a starring role in the feature film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982).
When Davey is buying his ticket for the riverboat ride, the cash register ringing and the sound of coins are the same ones used in the Pink Floyd song Pink Floyd: Money (1973).
The "Invisible Bomber" project plans contained within the secret game cartridge strongly resembles the United States Air Force's SR-71 Blackbird. Not known to the general public at the time of the film's release, the SR-71 was designed to be a stealth aircraft, and had indeed sprung from a secret Air Force project to produce a supersonic stealth bomber. As it was fielded, the SR-71 ended up as a stealth reconnaissance platform. The "Invisible Bomber" plans in the film include a reference to a "Forward Looking Infrared Pod," (FLIR) which now is well known as a component of military attack craft; at the time of the filming however, it would have been futuristic.
In the USA, the movie was launched in a limited release on a double-bill with The Last Starfighter (1984) on 13th July 1984. About a month later, on 10th August 1984, Cloak & Dagger (1984) then re-opened separately for its own season.

Stars: Wilford Brimley(Rest in Peace), Warwick Davis, Aubree Miller

Marauders raid the Ewok village and steal a power supply they believe to be magical. Wicket helps Cindel escape the evil witch Charal, and they befriend a hermit who may help them save the village.
Charal is a Nightsister. The Nightsisters are a sect of Sith witches from the mysterious planet Dathomir that were sensitive to the dark side of the force, which they had dealings with Count Dooku. The Nightsisters appeared in the 3rd season of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars".
According to an interview with Warwick Davis, a second sequel known only by the working title "Ewoks III" was in the planning stages not too long after Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. The film however never got made.
Because Wilford Brimley did not get along with directors Jim Wheat and Ken Wheat, his scenes were directed by production designer Joe Johnston.
Though made for TV, actually got a short theatrical run in Germany.
If the film is considered canon, it's possible and most likely that it took place after Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). When Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and the Rebel Alliance encountered the Ewoks, Wicket does not speak English. In this film, Wicket speaks English after being taught by Cindel. If the film took place before 'Return of the Jedi', Wicket would be speaking English when he encountered Princess Leia.
The 2001 book "The Wildlife of Star Wars: A Field Guide" by Terryl Whitlatch reveals that the winged creature that attacks Wicket in the cave is called a 'Condor Dragon'.
The character of Noa foreshadowed a science fiction film that would be written by screenwriters Ken and Jim Wheat about a man stranded on a desert planet, when he is shipwrecked. That film became 2000's "Pitch Black".
The Marauder's pack animals, known as Blurgs, were based on unused concept art by Phil Tippett originally developed for the Tauntauns from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). The Blurggs were seen again on the planet Ryloth in Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Liberty on Ryloth (2009) and Star Wars Rebels: Hera's Heroes (2016) as well as being featured in The Mandalorian: Chapter 1: The Mandalorian (2019).

The college students who hire BJ to haul equipment for a talent show secretly plan to his rig as a gambling casino.
While this episode was clearly inspired by National Lampoon's Animal House (1978), the title "Wheels of Fortune" was likely taken from the song of the same name that appeared on C.W. McCall's 1979 album "C.W. McCall & Co." The song describes the life of an independent trucker and the chorus is "(Gotta keep these wheels) Wheels of fortune rollin' /It don't matter where we're goin' / East or west or south to Tennessee /(Gotta keep these wheels) Wheels of fortune movin' / Keep on truckin', keep on movin' / Gotta stay ahead of the finance company."

Going to be using this "channel" as a place to post Public Domain videos that I find from various (well known and sourced) sites on the internet. Eventually, when I get some better equipment and a better handle on how do to things on BitChute I will start another channel for movie reviews and perhaps one for discussions for comic books/politics or whatever else anyone may want to chat about. Thank you for taking the time to read this/watch these videos. ~Doc
