Private Benjamin

It’s been a lllooooonnng time since I watched the movie Private Benjamin – it was most likely as a VHS rental sometime in the 80s, where I remember a bedraggled, helmet wearing Goldie Hawn peering out from the box on the video shop’s shelves. As a result I have no idea if a truck the same, or similar to this one featured in the film, or if the owner named it by some other association. It’s an impressive looking vehicle whatever the case.

In VHS days
Persusing the shelves of films
For that night’s viewing

  1. Oh, man, Private Benjamin. Here in the US I remember it being on the TV frequently in the early-mid 80s when I was growing up (There was even a short-lived TV series!) And now, it’s pretty much forgotten about, and I doubt that millenials or younger have seen or even heard of it! It’s interesting to see what pop culture sticks around.
