Waht are some of people's favorite tractors in movies?

I enjoyed the Oliver in "Walk the Line."

I also hated the scene in Footloose where the wreck the tractor racing it.

probably one of the most seen tractors in Tv programs would be the Massey Ferguson 165 in the Smallville series.
I think it was on almost every episode.

My all time best garden tractor is "The Straight Story". The Red and John Deere were OK but the movie itself is great.

Couldn't agree with you more Bill, I liked the movie as well. But, other than you, I really liked the John Deere 110!

I had two DVDs and one VCR copies of the movie but have no idea which of the kids "borrowed" them so I bought another DVD off eBay, Watched it this evening with three of the grandsons,4, 6 and 9 years old, who have a JD 140 we bought them for their birthdays a couple of years ago. Another $100 tractor.

I could not remember what model the JD in the movie until the copy arrived in the mail today and I saw the tractor on the cover.

I was watching a Magnum P.I. episode tonight called Billy Joe Bob and there was a 200 series John Deere pulling a trailer in it.
