Solid P.I. yarn from the 80's, excellent for a TV production..
17 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I spied this little number while in the checkout line at BIG LOTS (can I say that?). For only $1.50, how could anyone lose? If you don't like it - turn it into a coaster :) Anyhow, since I never had much chance to catch 80's television (mostly by choice - so much of it was dreadful) I thought I'd take a chance on a slow Friday night.

In short, I was not disappointed by Street of Dreams; more like pleasantly surprised. It looks like some effort was made in writing, casting and producing this made-for-TV movie. I especially admire the contributions of David Marciano (Bando) the wise-cracking hood and Alan Autrey (Maurey Fields) without his "Heat of the Night" sou-than drawl in evidence.

Even John Hillerman's (Raymond Kepler) fake English accent is tolerable

  • it's much more polished and less hackneyed than when he starred in
that HI P.I. show - yeah, you know which one. Diane Salinger plays his wife (Anne Kepler) and the only one who seems to know what's going on a-la Jane Hathaway (Nancy Kulp - The Beverly Hillbillies).

One of the other contributors has fairly described the plot of Street of Dreams in a nutshell - when (if) you watch this one various connections to Hollywood and the Mob also become evident. Besides the late model cars and Ms. Fairchild's (Laura Cassidy) 80's "big-hair" look this movie has not aged too badly. Video quality ranges from fair to quite good, depending on the light of each scene. It suffers at both extremes.

PS - I live just down the street from the HS that Ms. Fairchild attended and subsequently dropped-out of. To my eyes she looks even better today than back when they made Street of Dreams.
