Just out: "The Greatest Game Ever Played". Has lots of fun golf :lol: and lots of fun pipes :lol: ! The perfect combination :lol: ! A good family movie too :lol: . No sexual crud; little cussing (at least I don't remember any). Great scenery. Great drama and story. Highly recommend it.

tell me if I am seeing things, it's not a movie, but........ alright all you xbox/pc gamers tell if if I am right or wrong, but the admiral on "Halo" in one of the opening cut sceens has a pipe in his hand . I don't think he smokes it though, just uses it to point around.(yeah I know it's not a movie)

See the class and style of smoking a pipe will still be there in the future!!

In "Grapes of Wrath" there's a guy who is in charge of a camp, and he's smoking a pipe while talking to the Joads.

Also, in "Spencers' Mountain" the university president either smokes a pipe or is handling one after talking to Mr. Spencer about his son going to college.

Also, I saw an interview once with Ian Anderson (lead singer of Jethro Tull) and he was smoking, what looked to me like, a Ben Wade freehand.

Again, I realize it is not a movie, but several episodes of Murder She wrote have people with pipes. In one she gives an old Meer that was her husband's to a friend.

The movie Clue. The Professor (Christopher Lloyd) smokes a pipe throught the whole movie.

Then of course Shadowlands because it is about C.S. Lewis. That movie was awesome. My wife and I cried all through the ending.

Sorry for bumping all of these old messages...

I just got the Monty Python complete Flying Circus DVD set (16 DVDs) for Christmas. Graham Chapman smokes a straight pipe in almost every episode.

Two of my greatest pleasures in life are historical crime and the work of Orson Welles. Given this, it's a wonder that I only just watched 1959's Compulsion with Dean Stockwell and Orson Welles.

It's a semi-fictionalized account of the Leopold & Loeb trail with Welles playing a character based on famed attorney Clarence Darrow. While Darrow wasn't, to my knowledge, a pipe smoker, Welles appears smoking a pipe in several of the scenes. Image

"Mr. Blandings builds his dream house" is THE pipe smoking movie. I just can't even explain it, but when it shows up on AMC you've got to see it.
I second this. That film is replete with pipe smoking to almost a gratuitous extent.

Father Goose, a wwII comedy with Cary Grant, Leslie Caron, Trevor Howard and others. It's a great show for older kids, actually.

Trevor Howard is the pipe smoker, with a different pipe seemingly in every scene. Some very nice looking pipes too.

As he staggered down the stairs.

ImageThere's even been a "Blandings Collection" of matched, boxed pipes that's been recently released.

I read somewhere that Darrow would smoke a cigar w/ a wire run through it so the ash wouldn't fall off during the prosecution's summation to distract the jury.

That story is usually told about Mark Twain testifying in a trial against a friend and wishing to distract the jury from what he was saying.
