Forgotten Film Shirts

Post by lord ched » Tue Jan 12, 2010 6:48 pm

This is my recently-acquired "The Blue and the Grey" shirt- an obscure 1982 CBS TV movie with Stacy Keach in the lead and Gregory Peck as Lincoln (just like in every other movie he made). Had no idea it existed, let alone merited this amazing crew shirt- found it looking for bargoons on the 'bay, and was rewarded with the punch-you in the nose typeface and priceless, epic-passionate artwork.

As a movie buff, I always love finding shirts for forgotten movies, and was wondering if anybody had a deeply obscure movie or TV item in their closets that they wouldn't mind sharing. I don't mean cult movies, I movies without any kind of fan base that you just remember fondly or just plain couldn't believe merited a t-shirt. Any takers?

Excellent shirt on a few levels!

I would not say that these movies are particularly obscure. But when I run into these pieces it does give a moment of pause:

And by the time they made that movie, Dudley and Liza were, too, on the rocks.

The immortal Better Off Dead! What boy-child of the 80s wouldn't dig on that? Amazing find!

I just found this today:

It's not obscure, but I had forgotten about the movie until today. It brings back some memories.

It's got "gremlins" written on the sleeves", copyrighted 1984.

If you get that shirt wet, you'll have enough of them to wear a different one every day of the year! :)

If you feed them after midnight, they become Gildan XL's after ten washes.

Amadeus won the oscar for best picture in 1984. I have to think, that there must have been some heavy politics involved, because clearly, The Mutilator was far and away, the superior film that year. Sure Mozart's a musical genius...good for him...but did he compose this: By sword, by pick, by axe, bye bye??? No? Oh. I rest my case!
