We were out walking today enjoying the weather and came across this railroad bridge. A couple of old war movies came to mind.

Walter got one of my thoughts

Cal, I had not heard of "The Bridges of Toko-ri" before. After a Quick search on IMDM.com I found it was a 1954 film starring William Holden and Grace Kelly.

Since its too long a walk for me to get there Id say that was One Bridge Too Far.

A less obvious one for which this shot would work would be "Ode to Billy Joe." Bridge looks very much like the one used in that film, and the river could certainly pass for the Tallahachie.

The only problem with that guess is that you are relating the photo to the content of the film, not the title.

I see your point. Perhaps a more accurate statement would be that I was relating the interpretation to the lyrics of the title song. I can't imagine remembering much of the plot of the movie, which was just about what you would expect with Jethro Bodine as a director.
