About Nothing over 6 bucks each!

Manly films and TV Movies for 4.88 at Wal*Mart 03:29 pm
I went to Wal*Mart yesterday lookin' for reasons to spend money I didn't have and don't you know, I found many.

They had a big cardboard display entitled "American Heroes" with movies starring Elvis, Clint Eastwood, and John Wayne. They were all 4.88 each. Here's what I remember. I know the Elvis list is complete.

The King:
The Trouble with Girls (1969)
Speedway (1968)
Double Trouble (1967)
Spinout (1966)
Harum Scarum (1965)
Viva Las Vegas (1964)
It Happened at the World's Fair (1963)
Jailhouse Rock (1957)

Clint Eastwood:

A Perfect World (1993)
White Hunter Black Heart (1990)
Pink Cadillac (1989)
The Dead Pool (1988)
City Heat (1984)
Firefox (1982)
Bronco Billy (1980)
Every Which Way But Loose (1978)
The Gauntlet (1977)
The Enforcer (1976)
Magnum Force (1973)
Kelly's Heroes (1970)

I also found a bunch of two packs that were 4.88 each. They all seemed to be television movies. You don't often see items that proudly proclaim "Susan Lucci Double Feature!" or "Joan Rivers Double Feature!" but yesterday, I saw both. All were in full size Amray cases shrink-wrapped side by side with a thin cardboard wrapper on the bottom front and full back. Looking around Amazon, it seems that most of these were put out on DVD within the last few months.

I wanted to buy them all, but the Elvis movies tapped me out. Here's what I recall:

-Naomi & Wynonna: Love Can Build a Bridge (Ashley Judd plays herself!)
-Summer Dreams: The Story of the Beach Boys (wonderfully awful if you're a Beach Boys fan)

-How to Murder a Millionaire (1990)
-Tears and Laughter: The Joan and Melissa Rivers Story (1994) (They play themselves! I sense a trend)

-The Great American Sex Scandal (Bronson Pinchot plays 4 parts!)
-Earth Angel (1991)

-Countdown: The Sky's on Fire (1998)
-Lightning: Fire from the Sky (2001) (What, no smoke on the water?)

-Freshman Fall (1996) (DJ from "Full House" and Zack from "Saved By The Bell"...together at last! Unfortunately, he rapes her. Also, the original title "She Cried No" was much better)
-To Brave Alaska (1996) (Aylssa Milano in the snow)
-...Almost (1990)
-Nitti: The Enforcer (1988)
-Children of the Bride (1990)
-Baby of the Bride (1991)
-Mother of the Bride (1993)

That's all I can remember as they were so generic, but there must have been at least 15 different 2 packs.
