CAIRN MOVIE DESCRIPTIONS
· #Saturn 3- 1980,
Farrah Fawcett, Kirk Douglas, Harvey Kitel, directed by Stanley Donen, This is a creepy,
campy little outer space gem starring the late, wonderful Farrah Fawcett with the great actor Kirk Douglas. Farrah plays a botanist,
born off world, who dreams of visiting the Earth she has only heard about. She and Kirk live alone together working to research botanical
food sources for their home planet. Her character is seemingly unaware of her extraordinary charms.
famous poster haircut is in full display in this picture. The actress is fresh from having retired her iconic role as an angel in
the television classic “Charlie’s Angels”. Kirk Douglas is her older lover. He is a worldly scientist who is happy as far from earth
as he can go. Of course, being stuck on a private planet in a tropical jungle with Farrah Fawcett and a nice little pet dog, what
man wouldn’t want to stay put for a while? For fans of Kirk Douglas, there is a partial nude scene of a remarkably fit and striking
All would have gone well for the couple if it weren’t for that pesky yearly visit for
supplies from earth. The Cairn Terrier Sally is pivotal to the plot as she senses danger first. Unfortunately her ability to divine
character leads to her demise. Harvey Kitel plays the jealous visitor who brings trouble to paradise. There is a lot of tension in
this picture and a bit of plot lifted from a famous Star Trek episode. Although it is not set in a steampunk time frame, steampunk
fans will love the robot gone mad. That is the reason this film earned a steampunk notation on the list. This film has scenes that
include some drug use that is appropriate to the plot, mild nudity, eroticism, and some violence. Sci-Fi. VHS, DVD, listed as a Netflix
· The Stepfather-1986,
John Schoelen, Shelly Hack, directed by Joseph Rubin.
This is a violent, late 1980’s psycho/slasher film.
It does not have as much blood and death as classics of this genre like “Nightmare on Elm St”. It also does not have any fantasy elements.
It is just depressing and violent. There is one obligatory nude girl in the shower psycho stabbing scene.
The family pet is a Cairn Terrier. This Cairn was a little harder to identify due to its soft looking puppy coat and out of proportion
puppy ears. The dog is in its gangly teenage stage of development. It is a very young, under a year old, ungroomed Cairn. This film
has content that includes a lot of violence, disturbing imagery adult themes, and some nudity. VHS, DVD, DVD Blu-ray, available at
· One Crazy Summer-1986
Demi Moore, John Cusack,
Bobcat Goldthwaite, directed by Savage Steve Holland
This picture is the source of a huge error on this list
that occurred early in the Cairn Terrier Movie List history. I saw this film late at night on television and remembered the name incorrectly.
When I researched the name I remembered, it led to my listing of information for a gay erotic film from Canada as the picture that
contained cute Cairn puppies in disguise. That was incorrect. Now I re-watch every picture before listing it to make sure I have the
correct title with the correct film information. If you see the other film, “My Summer Vacation”, listed as a Cairn Terrier movie
anywhere, it is because that site lifted my list and then reprinted the error.
“One Crazy Summer” is
a cute, romantic, teen beach vacation movie. Demi Moore plays an aspiring rock musician who must save her family home from a greedy
developer. She is aided by John Cusack in the role of Hoops, a young man who lost his basketball dream and wants to get into design
school on the strength of his cartoons. Bobcat Goldthwaite is one of his crazy friends. Together they refurbish a boat and work to
win the local sailing competition to win the money prize and save Demi’s house.
During the entire house saving
effort, Hoops puts together his comic book love story to get into college. At the end of the film and the yacht race, the pet dog
that spent the whole picture in a veterinary surgical collar arrives on the dock with a line of adorable Cairn Terrier puppies. They
are all walking on deck in tiny veterinary surgical collars. The puppies are as cute as they can be. This is a very entertaining teen
beach picture. You will recognize a lot of young actors that went on to fame starring in other popular 80’s teen films like “National
Lampoon’s Animal House”. There are some spicy situations and activities that make this more appropriate for older kids and teens.
This film contains language and themes appropriate for older teens. Available on DVD, Netflix.
