I don't have a favorite film that I have seen more than a couple times. I did have an aunt who watched Gone With the Wind over 50 times. Way back in time. Hehe
At the Gordon Theater, one of Baton Rouge's big downtown 3 (and the most generic, the other 2, Paramount and The Hart, were things of beauty, now parking lots). I digress, I liked it. Streisand looked very fine back then. Later girlfriend even had that Streisand look
Edit - Should have been under the "top" post.
"E Burres Stigano?"
that she did continue to look pretty good up until about 10 years ago. When she decided to do what everyone else in Hollywood does and go under the knife... and NOT a good one I might add. For YEARS she resisted any kind of cosmetic surgery, but as you can see now she has begun to resemble the famed "cat woman" of Beverly Hills... It's sad really.. I own ALL of her CD's and movies up until the last one (The Wall) which was basically a stab at the current President. I've always known her politics, but she never previously wore it as a badge on her work. It doesn't really matter any more, her voice is merely a shadow of what it once was. In much the same way that Sinatra should have retired, her days as a singer are sadly over and somebody should tell her so. She should retire before she tarnishes an incredible career much the way that Sinatra did. But, maybe she needs the money (which I doubt). I was lucky enough to see her live twice on her 1994 tour after 20 some years of being off the concert circuit... I saw her at the then Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim and we had a little back in forth with each other as she waited for the set-up of a song she was recording for the eventual DVD of the concert.... Someday someone will post that footage on Youtube and I'll have it....
When I worked as an usher for the loews theatre chain, they opened a newly constructed major movie theatre with funny girl.
It played for many months, with long lines common in the first days. Easy rider was the only other movie that drew customers near to that volume, followed by a distant contender for long running, a movie called "boys in the band" an adaption of a stage play about gay issues, a big deal at the time.
The gay crowd was interesting for a sheltered teenager. I was caught staring at a woman, and she asked me, " what's the matter, haven't you ever seen a rampaging bull dyke before?".
I had to admit that I hadn't. I had never even heard the term before, or since, come to think go it.
one has to appreciate the diversity of people, because pissed off doesn't play well with the reality of the amount of freaks, plain or fancy, around.
who imagine living in the same polite, genteel way. Boomer Kids dont even know what it is. There was once a theater in Atlanta that only played it. Not sure when it shut down.
at the Fox Theater in Riverside, CA.... The theater fell into disrepair for a number of years... but finally was rescued and since has re-opened as a live venue just down the street from the world famous Mission Inn.....
I have yet to see it on the big screen... I keep watching for a showing... was hoping since it's 80th anniversary was here that some art house theater would put it up there... No luck yet....
your aunt? :-)
Hi tin. I guess we can call it a escape vehicle. She was a young woman when the film came out. Married to a man who sank into alcoholism and abuse.
As she aged family members kept her informed of when it would be on TV. Later they got her a video tape player with the tape.
"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!"
BUY that TV Guide, SEARCH for... MOVIES!!!!!!... mark it DOWN...wait...ANTICIPATE...
It was so incredibly EXCITING, that process.
Seldom was a movie you had read about, was legendary, was otherwise unavailable to view, SO EXCITING to see.
And it was on the TV, and you had to wait to see it and it was ALWAYS worthwhile.
