Okay, now for movies.
Cindy Williams. You know her as the last half of "Laverne & Shirley." Before she did that sitcom, it looked like she had a film career. She did the classic "American Graffitti" and she did "The Conversation." Playing Shirley kind of ended that making her Shirley in everyone's eyes.
"The Conversation" is a classic from the early 70s, Francis Ford Coppola directed it. Shirley's character is having an affair with this guy. And she's married.
Gene Hackman is spying on them. He tapes "the conversation." He becomes convinced that her husband is going to kill her (Cindy). And he also wants to make money off his tapes.
I could tell you more about the film but that would spoil surprises. Terri Garr's also in the cast, I can tell you that.
If you were going to do a mini-film festival of the great films from the 70s, I would say make this one day with a series of similar great films from that period.
Like? Alan J. Pakula made some great films. I'd pair this with his "Klute" (Jane Fonda won her first Oscar for this film) and "The Parallax View" (Warren Beatty is great in this film).
Those three films -- Pakula's two and FFC's "The Conversation" -- are three of the best suspense films ever.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
