Nancy: A Life in Movies
1971 – Dirty Harry
Clint. Eastwood. That is all.
1972 – High Plains Drifter
1973 – American Graffiti
Having grown up in The Valley, cruisin’ has a special place in my heart. Also, I used to love listening to Wolfman Jack on the radio.
1974 – Chinatown
Jack Nicholson’s bandaged nose.
1975 – Jaws
The first blockbuster, and yet there’s something so special about this film that modern blockbusters just can’t touch.
1976 – Rocky
The epitome of the American Dream.
1977 – Star Wars
Saw this on opening night at the Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. Science Fiction had finally arrived.
1978 – Superman
It was just so good, unexpectedly.
1979 – Apocalypse Now
The Redux version is best. My favorite Vietnam War film. Martin Sheen. Brando. Dennis Hopper. Just brilliant. The great anti-war movie.
1980 – The Blues Brothers
Laughed my ass off and embarrassed my husband in the theater.
