Movie Trailers

Travel Trailers keep turning up in movies on TV. I saw this one recently on Turner Classic Movies.

The Lusty Men

An ex-rodeo champ eyes the wife of a rodeo rider he coaches to fame.
  • Susan Hayward
  • Nicholas Ray
  • Robert Mitchum
The main characters live in a trailer as they travel the rodeo circuit. Susan Hayward makes pot roast in the trailer.

Then there is the classic trailer movie;

The Long Long Trailer

Nicky and Tracy are just married. After the two are hitched, they hitch up their trailer and begin their honeymoon. The humor comes from several disastrous adventures the couple has while traveling including Tacy's awkward attempt to cook dinner in a moving trailer, and a cliffhanging ride through the mountains that nearly destroys their marriage.
  • Lucille Ball .... Tacy Bolton - Collini
  • Desi Arnaz .... Nicholas 'Nicky' Collini
  • Marjorie Main .... Mrs. Hittaway
  • Keenan Wynn .... Policeman

Recently I also saw this one. A big portion of the early action takes place in a trailer.

Charley Varrick

Charley Varrick and his friends rob a small town bank. Expecting a small sum to divide amongst themselves, they are surprised to discover a very LARGE amount of money. Quickly figuring out that the money belongs to the MOB, they must now come up with a plan to throw the MOB off their trail.
  • Walter Matthau .... Charley Varrick
  • Joe Don Baker .... Molly
  • Felicia Farr .... Sybil Fort
  • Andrew Robinson .... Harman Sullivan
  • Sheree North .... Jewell Everett
  • Norman Fell .... Mr. Garfinkle
  • Benson Fong .... Honest John
  • Woodrow Parfrey .... Harold Young
  • William Schallert .... Sheriff Bill Horton
  • Jacqueline Scott .... Nadine
Charlie and Nadine live in a trailer. Charlie hopes his big score would be a few thousand dollars. He got $750,000.

Anyone know of any other movies with Trailers in them?

All of the movie descriptions were taken from the Internet Movie Database

Lusty Men is a very good movie, Mominem. I'd forgotten that a trailer figured in it. Of course, I haven't seen it post-K.
