RMG 185: The Presidio (1988)

June 12, 2019

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is geeking out over The Presidio (1988) and

  • weirdly, and badly, worded taglines
  • missing sex scenes
  • relationships
  • listener feedback
  • and much, much more!


Lt. Col. Caldwell (Sean Connery) and Police Inspector Jay Austin (Mark Harmon) don’t like each other. Not even a little bit! That’s because Caldwell helped run Austin out of the military police a few years back… And now these natural enemies are forced to team up to solve a brutal murder at The Presidio military compound.

To make matters worse, Inspector Austin has taken a sudden, and passionate, interest in a beautiful, feisty young woman (Meg Ryan), who just happens to be Lt. Col. Caldwell’s daughter.

First, sparks fly between the young lovers… Then fists and bullets start flying as this action-packed thriller kicks into high gear, and tears up the streets of San Francisco.
