[short film] Triple Aught Design M-65 Field Jacket (& Taxi Driver (1976), etc)

[short film] Triple Aught Design M-65 Field Jacket
(influences :

Taxi Driver 1976 Martin Scorsese

Pat Garret and Billy the Kid 1973 Sam Peckinpah

First Blood 1982 Ted Kottchef

... and many more...)

M-65 was also worn by Arnie, in the first "Terminator (1984), by Al Pacino in "Serpico (1973).

But, the most memorable, the one that stands out is, ...


"You talkin' to me?"

'Suck on this"

Oh, by the way, why "Pat Garret and Billy the Kid" is mentioned?
It has nothing to do with M-65.

It's because of this scene.

At 1:18, you can clearly see buck shots flying into the camera's direction.

When I first watched this movie, it made me wonder, how Peckinpah filmed this.

Later on, I found out how he did it.
And I used the same technique in this video.
(Water gun directly firing into the camera.)

Back to "M-65".
In the world of cinema, for some reason, it's always worn by an outsider, a drifter, a loner, ... , never by someone who's life is filled with happiness.

The "damaged" or "deranged" Vietnam vet was a fairly well used trope in Hollywood throughout the 70's, rather unfairly. The M-65 was an easy costume accessory.

To Stallone's credit, he addressed some of prejudices and stereotypes, while inadvertently reinforcing some, in the first Rambo movie, before they went all cartoonish.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm with isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary. It'll happen to you!"
