I agree but I still loved that movie. I was in the navy then at a school. I probably watched it 30 times. Reproduction, cool rider, charades. Granted the actor's were not as good as those from Grease. Still it was a good movie

Incidentally, i too always thought that Olivia was the bee’s knees... So ive always been partial to Hopelessly.. but of course Summer Nights is great as well, my other favorite is One That I Want... heck, even Beauty School Dropout has grown on me over the years, though i think overall it, along with Worse Things and Sandra Dee are probably the weakest songs in the film.
Olivia is 72 and has battled multiple bouts of cancer, and she is STILL the bee’s knees. IMHO.

So, between you and me...was there any subliminal messaging going on, and if so, was it beneficial?

****NSFW****


So I've seen it 3 times with my wife and she's seen it 2 additional times, not to mention the dozens of times we played the soundtrack in the car, and not 1 single time was it beneficial in that way to me. But we are married, so that's not really an option any way, apparently.

For some reason, I just pictured the scene from The Other Side of the Mountain in which they make it look like Jill Kinmont literally flew off a cliff. One of the first tearjerker movies I ever saw. After the hoopla of the movies about her life, you never heard much about her. She died in 2012. Amazing woman.
I remember watching a sneak previews show hosted by Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert. The late 60's to early 70's were common for tearjerkers. According to Ebert,Hollywood was afraid of a strong woman and made them sick or injured. Love story with Ryan O'neal and Ali Magraw was also popular at the time.

In the Heights started streaming on HBO today
incredible
in particular the 'staging' of the numbers was stunning
if you're a fan of Hamilton you will recognize some cadences, modulations and beats (it was written about a decade before Hamilton- even more than Hamilton, it's clear that Lin Manuel is an amazing lyricist)

How many bands have members with PHD's ? Sha Na Na has two. That's incredible when you think about it .

Kris Kristofferson was a Rhodes Scholar.

Gram Parsons attended Harvard. Not sure if that counts, but I think it's a fun anecdote and he's got a "fun" death story if ya'll don't know it ... and a connection to NOLA.
