Smile Movie Cold Turkey "Great American Smoke out"

Just wondering if anyone remembers this movie? Granted it is an oldie, lol, but every time I think about it I end up smiling.

I have been quit for 9days 1 hours and 54 minutes (1 week 2 days). I have saved $46.80 by not smoking 360 cigarettes. My quit date 3-14-07 (put out last cigarette 11:59pm 11-13-07).

I remember the title, but I can't remember anything about the movie. Who was in it?

Re: Movie "Great American Smoke out"


I got the name of the movie wrong it was actually called Cold Turkey (1971) and Dick Van Dyke & Pippa Scot starred in it. Here is the plot "Plot Synopsis: Reverend Brooks leads the town in a contest to stop smoking for a month, But some tobacco executives don't want them to win, and try everything they can to make them smoke. If townspeople don't go nuts, from wanting a cigarette, or kill each other from irritation and frustration, they will will a huge prize. "

What keeps me smiling is what the character Dick Van Dyke plays does when he craves a smoke (cig). What gets me laughing is the expression on his wife's face when she sees him walking up the sidewalk.

I saw that movie! (A very long time ago, I might add...) I have to rent this again. Sounds pretty funny actually. Quite a contrast to this message board. My, how we have advanced over time...
