    ★★★

    So it was baby sitting duty again and rather than choosing a sweet animation like she always has, she picked this film. The film that would never die.

Both opened in 1977. I tried once getting into Studio 54; I didn't with Plato's! I like thousands of others failed - turned away by a doorman with a discerning eye for straight squares like me. I was a member of the Bridge and Tunnel…
