1.    One of the best TV series of the time was Magnum, P.I. (1980-1988)

2.    High road to China (1983)

This movie stars Tom Selleck as a freelance pilot who gives lessons at a field near Istanbul.

However, the movie seems too busy in introducing an American rich kid played by Bess Armstrong who has to prove that her dad is alive or else she will lose all the assets and money left over.

The movie moves in the direction of Tibet where Bess Armstrong thinks that her dad might be fighting over a border war along with Selleck the pilot and his sidekick Jack Weston.

While they are exploring the surroundings it seems predictable that our stars would be flying over mountains, desserts, enjoying campfires, and find it difficult in escaping from the hands of hostile Arabs, Turks, Mongolians, and finally find her father.

3.    Lassister (1984)

Another amazing addition to Tom Selleck movies list, well this movie was “hit the deck” right after the amazing series of Magnum, P.I.

Here in this movie, Tom Selleck plays the role of a Cat burglar who is asked during the early stages of WWII to steal $10 million from the Nazis.

He does succeed in doing so but meanwhile, he has to go through undesiring thrills.

4.    Three Men and a Baby (1987)

Three Men and a Baby is an awesome movie to watch, it included an enjoyable mixture of humor, drug smuggling thrills, and the perfect aspirational life of middle-class families.

All the three stars Naming Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson had great chemistry and made the roles look so natural that no matter how hatred you are, you would love the concept and piece of acting these three stars have performed.

5.    An Innocent Man (1989)

Another great movie in which Tom Selleck plays the role of an Aeronautical engineer who is framed by a crooked narcotics police officer and sentenced to jail.

In this movie he further plays the role of how a prisoner survives through the hard times while being in jail, proves his innocence, thus leading the movie to a sort of justice warrior action-thriller.

6.    Quigley Down Under (1990)

Although the movie was liked by the critics unfortunately it failed to impress the audience over the box office.

This movie starred Tom Selleck, an actor who eases and justifies the role with his height, authority, and natural role-playing skills.

Here in this movie, he travels to Australia from America in search of work, where he meets a man named Marston who both later become famous for hitting targets so far away the camera barely sees them.

7.    Mr. Baseball (1992)

He plays the role of Jack Elliott, a great baseball player whose life suddenly turns around when he gets traded from the US to the Japanese franchise.

There he looks like a unicorn among other Japanese leading him to perform enjoyable culture clash sports comedy.
