What were they Thinking? is a collection of shorts that should probably of never been made in the first place. Either the money was good, they needed a break or a few screws were loose when Jimmy Stewart and Ronald Regan made the choice to participate in these programs. Watch it with someone you trust, it's not for the faint at heart. - Sentimental Journey: Take Jimmy Stewart, add a commercial passenger jet and film it in the 1970's. No this is not Airport 77. It's something far, far worse. Hidden away until now like some ancient Aztec curse, the short film "Sentimental Journey" is guaranteed to make you squirm in your seat no matter how great your tolerance for cheese may be. Witness Mr. Stewart as he mugs for the camera pretending to land a stationary plane in an imaginary ice storm. It's Jimmy like you have never seen him before (thankfully) and once you have watched this plane-wreck of a movie you may never be the same. - Recognition of the Japanese Zero: Starring Ronald Reagan: Highly successful actor, President of the United States and the man who brought down the Ruskies. True, there was the whole "Bedtime for Bonzo" ordeal, but otherwise a spotless record. That is until now. "Recognition of the Japanese Zero" features Mr. Reagan as an over eager P-40 pilot who just about shoots down one of his own pilots (because he didn't study his airplane recognition shapes well enough). After watching this cheese-fest you will be left wondering how Reagan avoided shooting down his own career. Warning: This film contains way more information on the shape of the Japanese Zero than you will ever want to know! - Flying Thunderbirds: This yawner of a film will give you that claustrophobic feeling that you are helplessly trapped between a wheel of cheese and the 1970's You know it's dull when the only thing you find yourself doing is keeping score of how many times you hear Jimmy's dentures clicking. Not for the faint of heart. Jimmy Stewart was a big shot with the Air Force ultimately rising to the rank of Brigadier General in 1959. During WWII he and some other Hollywood moguls even founded a flight school for pilots called "Thunderbird Field". That was nice. He should have left it at that. But no, thirty years later Jimmy is back sleep-narrating through a tribute to the pilots of the "Flying Thunderbirds... sad, but true.
