"Talent for the Game" Scene occurs around mid movie where Edward James Olmos tries to convince the father of a baseball prospect to let him sign with the Angels. It has an old station/garage with a Mobil sign and two Bowser 575's done up in Phillips 66.

Recommend the Mad, Mad,etc. but be sure to get the DVD of the movie and watch the service station portion in slow motion. All kinds of doubles doing all the stuff, especially around the garage door.

For you younger guys, the "Thunder Road" movie described above is the original with Robert Mitchum, and if you ever get a chance to watch it, that is Mitchum singing the "Thunder Road" song, I believe it was the only song he ever recorded.

About 15 years ago I would sit watching old movies with the VHS recorder button in my hand and as soon as a service station came in the screen I would hit record. I have some great screens, one I remember mostly was Humphry Bogart pulling up to some visible pumps while driving the oldest truck you ever saw. Will try and find the old VHS.

Great subject, keep it going.

Here are a couple from different periods of time:

GRAPES OF WRATH.That one's an early classic ,IMO,showing some great shots of 30's and 40's stations.It was filmed in the early 40's as I remember.

WILD HOGS.I think that came out last year.It was filmed here in NM so a friend of mine helped provide some of the props.They bought some pumps from him and blew them up.They wanted to rent his Frontier sign,but he didn't want to chance damage.So, they took a pic of his and made a prop for the movie using his as a pattern

One time my wife held me down then drugged me so I sat there in a stuper while she watched Freeky Friday and was supprised to see a Wayne Greek column pump. The whole thing was a fog but I did recall the pump. I swear I would have never watched the movie on my own. And I am not lieing THIS TIME
