On this day 36 years ago, the very first PG-13 movie was released. It was Red Dawn.

I still remember hearing from a friend that he was told the premise was all wrong. The Red Army and the Cubans would have flown into Atlanta on Boeing 747s with Delta markings. The guy who told him this was a survivalist gun store owner who thought they’d make good headway until they hit the mountains of North Georgia and Western NC where, in his mind, there were a ton of survivalists. It still makes a good story.

One thought on “Wolverines!”

  1. One of the best movies ever. And still brings tears to my eyes. The scenes dealing with the re-education camps are so very chilling.

    As I remember the Cold War and how close we were several times to crossing swords with the Soviets and their puppets.
