….since my Master’s preferred Hollywood Star doppelgänger debuted in the most irreverent sports movie directed by Oscar winner, Yale alumnus, George Roy Hill….
The movie, written by Nancy Dowd, premiered in New Haven — to silence and confusion.
“The language is quite a bit beyond blue,” Newman said during a 1976 television interview NHL Network unearthed. “It’s heavy into purple almost. I don’t believe a thing is truly vulgar if it’s funny. Boy, it’s foul-mouthed, but it’s real and beautiful.”
It’s absolutely stupid and every time I see it, I laugh at something new and get a bit sad because I know that area of the country, I know the 1970’s minor leagues, I grew up seeing Western PA and its rawness. It’s a character driven movie — everyone is a little yucky, but strangely enticing — train wrecks you cannot look away from.
And did I mention the clothing choices are spectacular?
Thank goodness, VHS saved the movie from obscurity.
