I had started the review of After Dark January 1977, but there was so much to feature that I needed to break it up into two parts.
The issue continued with other films remembered like A Woman at her Window, Laure, Fire Sale, The Voyage of the Damned, Cross of Iron, The Innocent, Pipe Dreams, King Kong, Nickelodeon and Bobby Deerfield.
In addition, Joseph Andrews starring Ann-Margret as the aptly named Lady Booby,
John Beck who starred in Audrey Rose,
former The Mamas & the Papas singer Michelle Phillips who was starring in Ken Russell's Valentino,
Terence Hill from Windfall, Michael York in flyaway hair from The Island of Dr. Moreau,
Sam Elliot in his beefcake glory Lifeguard,
and American Ballet Theatre dancer Clark Tippet who starred in The Turning Point with Shirley MacLaine and Anne Bancroft.
Bette Midler was about to recreate Lotte Lenya's role in The Seven Deadly Sins with choreography by George Balanchine here with the Divine Miss M.
Speaking of stage, Mom Smackley's favorite star Divine was appearing in Women Behind Bars as seen in this ad.
In the early 80's, HBO's Standing Room Only featured Vanities starring Annette O'Toole, Meredith Baxter-Birney and Shelley Hack and I was hooked. Well the play was featured in 1977 starring Lucie Arnaz, Sandy Duncan and Stockard Channing.
Finally, Seabastiane starring Leonardo Treviglio was reviewed by John Gruen.
