Black Day at Bad Rock

Post by Sue » Fri Nov 20, 2009 1:46 pm

A-team Black Day at Bad Rock
I've been rewatching The A-Team and this episode title struck me as a tad familiar. :mrgreen:

I was thinking it must have been written by the same writer, but it doesn't appear to have been. It looks like Mike got to the bottom of it in this old thread.
Michael Pajaro wrote:Similarities Between The 80's Action Shows
Many 80s plots were recycled from movies, not just from eachother. There was a Spencer Tracy western called "Bad Day at Black Rock" which was the inspiration for the KR and A-Team stories. Airwolf used the plot and footage of Airport '77 about a jet that crashes in the ocean. And of course you can never go wrong with the Evil Twin storyline.

Sue,
Actually both titles are a twist on the Spencer Tracy BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK from 1955.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047849/

A really great movie. I've seen it several times. I've seen tv shows many times take the title to a well known movie and give it a twist for their episode title.

Because the KR title is Good Day at White Rock.

Here's another with the same name.
