    Was watching the Al Pacino movie "Serpico" last night and was looking out for any subway cars in the film from 1973, the year of the movies release. Serpico goes down into the subways a couple of times and Im sittin there screaming at the screen hoping to see a subway car go past but no banana. No trains are seen. 1973!!! Imagine what wouldve been running in this year? So, it got me thinking about other movies of the same time period which do have small glimpses of the subways in them. Other people probably know of some so if you do, please post the titles and what it contains. Welcome Back Kotter springs to mind also.
