Pretty ironic, that conditioning.  Here in the US, we often just rip off what everyone else does and try to make it our own.  Take all the British TV shows that are remade for the American market: Who's Line Is It Anyway, American Idol, Weakest Link, etc...

"Bridge Over the River Kwai" is one of my favourites, next to "The Great Escape."

And yes the US does borrow heavily from other countries ideas, the difference is that in the US people generally have more cash to spend on the copy.

The Folly of youth is to think that intelligence is a subsitute for experience. The folly of age is to think that experience is a subsitute for intelligence.

Yeah, The Great Escape is another classic.  Have you ever seen "The Big Red 1''  Its about the US 1st Army in Italy if I remember right.  It even has Mark Hammill in a non-Star Wars, non-soft porno role.  Plus, it has Lee Marvin, I think he is in every WWII movie ever made in the US.  What other actor says WWII like Lee Marvin.

Yeah, I saw "Bridge...". I could never figure out why Obi Wan didn't whip out his light saber and kill all the bad guys....

Colonel Saito is the same guy that played the Pirate King in The Swiss Family Robinson.  Obi Wan wouldn't need a lightsaber - just some exploding coconuts and a tiger in a pit.
