Colin Higgins’ THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS & Nancy Walker’s CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC
Colin Higgins’ THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS (R, 1982, 115 min.)
Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds sing and dance through the biggest box office smash musical of the 1980s! When a pompous TV crusader (Dom DeLuise) threatens to expose the business of the Chicken Ranch to public scandal, the house Madam refuses to go down without a fight. With the help of the local sheriff Ed Earl Dodd, this little bitty puissant country place is gonna teach everyone on the planet that Texas has a whorehouse in it!
Nancy Walker’s CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC (PG, 1980, 124 min.)
This gay cult classic tells the not-quite-straight story of the creation of the Village People! Steve Guttenberg needs just one big break to make his songwriting dreams come true. So with the help of his roommate (Valerie Perrine) and an uptight tax attorney (Caitlin Jenner, appearing as Bruce Jenner), they bring together six singing macho men from the Village for an outrageously '80s adventure of fun, fantasy and disco fever.
