Re: They seldom get metal detectors right in movies. In "The Guns of Navarone"

German soldiers are using mine detectors and sweeping the tracks leading to the guns, which is silly- the detector would give off a signal due to the steel rails and spikes and other heavy iron plates [and be rather easy to see if the ground was disturbed from digging.]
In "Highlander" they use a detector on a concrete column [generally contain rebar] for flecks of metal [crazing from a sword] detector sounds like a geiger counter too.
The truest I recall was Clint Eastwood "Every Which Way." They are hunting on a beach with a Garrett-John Quaid was a 'heavy' in the movie and a friend of
Charles Garrett, so they got it right.

In The Fog, there was a scene or two when a guy with a detector was hunting a beach. If I remember correctly, the detector sounded like a detector. Hmmmm .... I think I'll pop it in and watch it, again.

All, Don't forget the 1949 movie starring Glenn Ford and Ida Lupino "Lust for Gold". Short summary goes like this, Fortune seeker Barry Storm stumbles onto some clues that may lead him to the fabulous Lost Durchman Mine, but others have tried and been murdered.

Great story line. Pretty close to the book written by Barry Storm... I have it too.

Not by name. What comes to mind though was the flick with the creatures that had heads that looked like exposed brains and they had hypodermic needle fingers that they would stick into the base of their intended victims neck. That one really freaked me out. :look:

Hey Daddy, It was the 1957 (B rated) Horror Classic "Invasion of the Saucer-Men" Starring: Steve Terrell, Gloria Castillo and Frank Gorshin (from '60's BatMan TV as he portrayed the "The Riddler")... Remember?
