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.
