Interesting note on the commentary about the female cast of American Grafitti, and how none of them seems to go on to quite as many iconic roles as most of the male stars, before you got into that, when you guys mentioned Candy Clark being in the film I immediately thought of The Man Who Fell To Earth. Maybe not an iconic role, but certainly not one to sneeze at. Then again maybe that’s just me. I imagine many people listening at home or on their iPod were like “Who?”
Of course, thanks to the internet I now can’t think of The Man Who Fell To Earth anymore without thinking about the brilliant review of it on Brows Held High, where the host sang the entire review to the tune of David Bowie songs. Seriously, check it out, it’s awesome. http://blip.tv/brows-held-high/bhh-the-man-who-fell-to-earth-mpg-5370618
Thanks for sticking with this series, I am with you until the end. I have loved this film since always, it was a favorite of my moms. Had the soundtrack on vinyl and when you opened the cover all the way you saw the car hop waitress from head to toe. My son just got me the Blu-ray for my birthday and it looks amazing. thanks again.
